Why Choose a Health Career?

Five good reasons why you should choose a health career

  1. Your community needs you. Shortages of health care providers continue to be an issue, particularly in rural and northern areas of Canada, including many First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities.
  2. First Nations, Inuit and Métis people are under-represented in all areas of the health care work force.
  3. First Nations, Inuit and Métis people suffer from poorer health compared with the general Canadian population.
  4. Jobs in the health industry will most likely be available in nearly all areas of Canada and abroad in the foreseeable future.
  5. A career in the health sciences can help you fulfill your dreams, whether they involve finding a cure for diabetes, helping people recover from depression or eradicating tuberculosis from the world.
