Careers: Jobs are plentiful in healthcare. The hard part is deciding which career to pursue – and where. You may work as a physician, nurse, administrator, physician’s assistant, osteopath, optometrist, podiatrist, radiation therapist, nuclear medicine technologist, medical laboratory scientist or physical therapist.
