Imagine a healthier New York. Everyone has access to quality care. The workforce is diverse- health providers look like the people they care for, and understand different cultures' needs. Most important, New York State has enough qualified, dedicated practitioners to serve all of its citizens, wherever they live and whatever their means.
Think Healthcare Isn't a Smart Career Choice? Think Again!
In order to make the above dream a reality, New York State will need a lot more individuals entering the healthcare industry. With national and statewide initiatives altering the traditional model of healthcare delivery, additional practitioners and healthcare professionals are needed to fill up and coming jobs, as well as jobs vacated by a retiring workforce. In fact, according to the New York State Department of Labor, the healthcare sector will be one of the largest growing fields, with an estimated 21% employment increase.
