As you explore careers in health care, there are many issues and considerations to think about.

If you are still in high school and considering your next steps, you may be asking questions like:

  • What school should I go to?
  • How do I know if this is the right school?
  • What should I be learning?

If you are considering your possible profession or as you near entering that profession, you may have other questions, such as:

  • Will there be other people like me in my field?
  • Will I have the opportunity to work with people who come from different backgrounds than I do?
  • What about my patients? What are my responsibilities to them?

This Issues section offers these resources to help you as you explore health careers:

In the News & Articles section, you can find articles about a wide range of health care and health care education topics, from how to pay for your education to writing the college essay.
