The health sciences form a large part of this sector, including the essential fields of public health, international health, leisure and health, health industry management and complementary medicine – the list is as long as our list of ailments, really. No matter your area of expertise, as a health science professional you will be able to offer the kind of scientific insight and technical skill that will always be in demand, especially as our population grows and ages into the future.
