Field Guide to Health Careers

Have you ever considered a career as a health care professional?

Northeast Oregon needs skilled health professionals of all types. Health services continues to be one of the fastest growing employment sectors in our labor market locally and nationally. As our population grows and ages, health care professionals will find many challenging and rewarding opportunities in this region.

We want to encourage you to consider the health field for your career, seek your education in the northeast Oregon area, and work in your chosen occupation in northeast Oregon! The Field Guide to Health Careers can be a helpful beginning point. It:

  • profiles over 30 health careers
  • lists which colleges offer health professional courses of study
  • lists addresses and phone numbers for over 60 Oregon, Washington and Idaho colleges and universities which offer health professions education
  • provides information on scholarships and financial aid

A copy of the Field Guide to Health Careers is available for download. If you use it for any purpose, please give credit to us for the work.
