More than a career - prepare to improve the lives of your patients, one life at a time.
In the healthcare industry, the challenges can be great but the rewards are many. Healthcare professionals work to ensure that their patients receive the needed treatment at the right time, investing their knowledge, skill, and understanding to create a safe and nurturing environment to help them recover.
There’s a ton of demand for skilled healthcare workers these days, with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Outlook Handbook citing that out of the 20 fastest-growing occupations in America today, more than half of them are in the healthcare industry.
Even with this sort of demand, there’s a lot of training and education that goes into healthcare science - and nobody can prepare you better than we can. From nursing and occupational therapy to dental hygiene and healthcare administration, Baker College offers a wide variety of certificate, associate, and bachelor degree programs to help you get your healthcare career off to the right start so you can do what you do best: improving the lives of those around you.
