According to U.S. government projections, employment of health care practitioners is projected to increase 14 percent through 2028, adding about 1.9 million new jobs. The U.S. Department of Labor also says that many of the fastest growing occupations are concentrated in the health care industry. By 2028, employment of home health aides is expected to grow by 37 percent, personal care aides by 36 percent, physical therapist assistants and aides by 26 percent, medical assistants by 23 percent, and medical and health service managers by 18 percent. Employment of medical secretaries will grow by 16 percent. There may be a general perception that careers in health care require advanced education; however, most jobs require less than four years of college.
