All aspects of healthcare (hospitals, long-term care facilities, rehabilitation facilities and home health agencies) are facing an immediate need as well as a continued long-range need for caregivers and support staff.

ARHA’s Health Career Guide is designed to give you an overview and some examples of the many types of jobs available.  It describes careers available for those interested in touching and healing as well as for those interested in technologically advanced support services. Whether a healthcare employee touches a patient or not, all provide key services that keep the healthcare delivery systems operating efficiently. Learn about typical duties of the job, education requirements, average salary and employment outlook for over 50 careers in the healthcare industry.

We encourage you to explore the job openings, shadowing or volunteer opportunities at one of our member hospitals listed in the guide.
