Applied Health Careers

The Bureau of Labor Statistics states the following: “Medical and health services managers also called healthcare executives or healthcare administrators, plan, direct and coordinate medical health services. They might manage an entire facility, specialize in managing a specific clinical area or department, or manage a medical practice for a group of physicians. Most medical and health services managers have at least a bachelor’s degree before entering the field; however, master’s degrees also are common. The median annual wage of medical and health services managers was $84,270 in May 2010.” The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates a 22% increase for medical and health services managers from 2010 and 2020, faster than the average for all occupations. “As the large baby-boom population ages and people remain active later in life, the healthcare industry as a whole will see an increase in the demand for medical services.
