About Health Science

With over 1.3 million employees, healthcare is Australia’s largest industry. Not only that, it’s been singled out by the government as one of the main industries set to experience large employment growth until at least 2016–17.

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.

Apart from the healthy job prospects, the other good news is that you will typically be well paid for your efforts. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics the health services industry shares first position for employee compensation with the financial and insurance services industry, making it one of the most well paid career choices.
