A career in health is rewarding and fulfilling, with endless opportunities to specialise in an area of your interest or become a well-rounded health professional in a multidisciplinary team. The health industry is a fast-growing sector, meaning chances of you and your peers finding a job and sparking enriching health careers are strong.
Health careers in Australia include a multitude of occupations across medicine, psychology, nursing and midwifery and health sciences. According to the Industry Skills Council many health occupations will experience skills shortages in the next five years, meaning there are opportunities for the next generation of talented and multi-skilled health care professionals to step up.
