• Health Science student

    Everyone needs health care. From newborns to seniors, Texans require professionals who are experts at diagnosing and treating disease, using medical technologies, and providing preventive care. Although everyone thinks of doctors and nurses when they contemplate careers in health care, there are hundreds of other specialties available in the Health Science cluster, including technicians, skilled support personnel, dentists, and scientists. In fact, a typical medical center is a giant business with employees as varied as aides and CEOs (chief executive officers). As the baby boomer generation in Texas ages, demand for health services grows, meaning that job security in the cluster is strong. If you feel a calling to care for others, won’t faint at the sight of blood, or want to pursue a profession on the cutting edge of technology, then Health Science may be the right cluster for you.
