Explore health and medical science careers

The National Institutes of Health, Office of Science Education's LifeWorks® is an interactive career exploration web site where users can browse for information on more than 100 medical science and health careers by title, education required, interest area, or median salary. Alternatively, the "Career Finder" can be used to generate a customized list of careers especially suited for users' skills and interests. LifeWorks® promotes awareness of the wide variety of occupations in health and medical sciences and the range of opportunities at different education levels. The site complements its factual career data by highlighting true stories of successful people in the field. They illustrate the variety of real-life career pathways, from the carefully planned to the unpredictable. 

While the site is designed for middle and high school students, and those helping them make decisions about their future, it would also be useful for individuals who are considering a career change and looking at the health care field.
