Prevention, Intervention, Curing & Caring

What is the Health & Biosciences career cluster?

The Health & Biosciences cluster covers research, treatment, and understanding of the human body, earthly organisms, and wellness issues, among other wide-ranging work within related organizations.

Medical assistants and technologists of varied certifications and specialties can have long, fulfilling careers and profound impact across a spectrum of settings. Beyond patient care, key careers at hospitals, clinics, and other wellness institutions include roles in operations, customer experience, and human resources. Plus, the development, regulation, marketing, sales, and support of medical plans, therapies, and devices represent expansive opportunities in engineering, technology, policy, science, strategy, and business, all.
