Is a Health Science Career for You?
People considering careers in health sciences typically tend to think primarily of doctors and nurses. But there is also the sonographer, the nutritionist, the cytotechnologist, the mental health counselor, and the health information manager, among dozens of other health professionals, who provide diagnostic and therapeutic services. All of these specialized and highly skilled professionals are an essential part of any health care team.
To encourage high school students to investigate specialties in the health field, Rutgers School of Health Professions has partnered with New Jersey high schools to offer exploratory programs in health sciences and health care for junior and seniors. At the same time, they can earn up to 34 college credits.
