Did you know there are more than 350 careers in health?
Some will give you direct contact with patients, while in others you are part of a vast support network vital to delivering healthcare. Some roles are in hospitals, others are based in the community. Some require the highest academic standards, while for many positions employers are looking for enthusiasm, keenness to learn and the ability to work as part of a team.
This booklet is a handy guide to some of those jobs. It is by no means a full list of health professions but it gives you some idea of the sheer number and variety of opportunities.
