AN INCREASING DEMAND
Health care jobs are projected to grow 18 percent from 2016 to 2026—faster than the average for all occupations.
This growth will add about 2.3 million jobs to the sector. The number of people ages 65 and over is expected to be 98 million by 2060, contributing to the expansion of health care needs. Projected growth in employment for specific health care professions:
HEALTH CARE EXECUTIVES, ADMINISTRATORS, MANAGERS
COMMUNITY HEALTH WORKERS
DIETITIANS AND NUTRITIONISTS
Our current students seek to improve accessibility and health equity in local communities and beyond. At the Parkinson School, they benefit from research opportunities, service learning, and internships that help bring their academic work to life.
A cornerstone of the Parkinson mission is deep involvement with and on behalf of our community. We harness our broad-based expertise, entrepreneurial energy, and focused spirit to address the wide range of influences that impact health.
