Summary
It is estimated that the United States will have over 1 million job openings in STEM-related (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields and occupations by 2018. Salem's new series explores the fields and occupations of science and other emerging fields, emphasizing STEM occupations and outlooks and green technologies where applicable. Written for high school and undergraduate students as well as general nonspecialists, this series will provide much needed insight into the career opportunities of this growing filed. This title examines 22 branches or fields of study in healthcare and allied health such as: Nursing, Dental Hygiene, Nuclear Medicine, Physical Therapy, Radiation Therapy, Speech Pathology, Respiratory Therapy, Athletic Training, Healthcare Information Management and more. The essays on the fields of healthcare and allied health include Core Concepts; Applications Past and Present; Impact on Industry; and Social Context and Future Prospect. Also included is a fact-based overview of the branch or subfield it covers. The essays on the corresponding occupation profiles include Education and Coursework; Daily Tasks and Technology; Earnings and Employment Outlook; and Related Occupations. Further reading suggestions accompany all science articles and a listing of occupational web resources accompany all occupational profiles. Every entry also includes sidebars, photos, and graphs illustrating key concepts. - Publisher
