You’ve always loved helping people and found an interest in those sluggish science classes. Whether you prefer to diagnose, treat, or prevent, it’s obvious healthcare is the place for you.
In healthcare, you need others, and they definitely need you. The healthcare industry added 271,000 new positions last year, and the upward trend is continuing in 2014. Job boards have already seen a 16% increase in healthcare job postings compared to this time last year*.
There's a shortage of healthcare professionals worldwide. With an overall aging population and the increasing complexity of the healthcare system, the time has never been better to be a trained and qualified healthcare professional. If it’s time to start your healthcare career, up, up and away!*HealthECareers, http://www.healthecareers.com/article/healthcare-job-outlook-most-new-jobs-projected/174918

If you want to make a difference in the lives of animals, the College of Veterinary Medicine at Mississippi State is a great place to start. Its Animal Health Center serves over 29,000 small animals, exotics, wildlife, horses, and livestock animals each year, so students get plenty of hands-on training to complement their top-notch academic studies. The university also is committed to advancing the discipline through student research and outreach – from administering vaccinations at local animal shelters to spending the summer in Uganda studying animal health challenges . You may even find yourself learning how to make models of spinal and skull injuries using the latest 3-D printer technology. Historically, the College of Veterinary Medicine has awarded the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree and masters/doctoral degrees in specialized fields of veterinary medical science. But in 2010, the College began offering a bachelor’s in veterinary medical technology in response to a national shortage of qualified workers in this field. Years later, the program still reports 100 percent job placement of graduates.
