Because there is so much demand for healthcare managers, you might find a job in a hospital, doctor’s office, or nursing home. Or you might work for the government, in consulting, with device manufacturers, or for a pharmaceutical company. You could also have job opportunities with health insurance companies, professional societies, or financial institutions. There are also job opportunities for you in a variety of geographic regions, from small towns in rural areas to big cities to international positions.
