While showing encouraging signs of recovery, today's economy is still on fragile footing. There are very few economic sectors that are booming at the moment and the job market is challenging at best.

One exception is the health sciences field. Due to the aging population and major changes in the health care market, careers in health sciences are expected to see substantial growth over the next decade and into the future.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor and Statistics (BLS), a job growth rate of 11 percent is expected between 2012 and 2022 for all occupations combined. Job growth for most health science occupations, however, are expected to double, triple or even quadruple that rate over the same period.
