Healthcare education doctorsHealthcare education programs are widely available throughout the world. Depending on the specific profession and degree desired within healthcare education, the length of study can vary from one to six years for a medical career.

For an international career in healthcare, it is best to check the transferability of your qualifications before choosing education institutions. The cost of healthcare education courses also varies widely across countries and institutions.

Healthcare degree specializations

Medicine (Physician)

The healthcare education of a medical physician is the study of maintaining or restoring human health through diagnosis and treatment of various ailments. Most physicians work in public healthcare systems at hospitals and health centres upon completing their education. In some countries, it is common to open your own practice. After a few years of practice, a physician has the option to move on to specialist courses to train within another field of healthcare such as surgery or orthopedics.

Nursing

The study of nursing involves a healthcare education aimed at improving the health of patients to an optimal level. There are many concentrations within nursing – pediatric, orthopedic, cardiac, mental – as well as the option of conducting further research in the field once a healthcare education is complete.

Pharmacy

Pharmacists are healthcare professionals who have completed healthcare education courses in drug therapy. Pharmacists often provide the first contact with patients seeking medical advice. Pharmacy education courses include the study of how to optimize medication use to provide patients with positive health outcomes.

Dentistry

Healthcare education courses for dentistry focus on the study of oral cavity healthcare. To become a fully licensed dentist, most European countries require a four year Masters degree and two years of internship.

Veterinary Medicine

An education in veterinary medicine is the study of animal healthcare, which aims to teach students the prevention of disease, improvement of food hygiene, and general good health for animals, namely pets.

Midwifery

Midwifery is a healthcare education focused on women's health, especially in the area of prenatal care to expecting mothers. The study of midwifery extends beyond labour and birth to include postpartum care of mother and child.

Occupational Therapy

An healthcare education in occupational therapy is the study of providing healthcare to individuals who have difficulty accessing or performing meaningful occupations. The aim upon graduating from this course is to help those with disabilities gain the skills to live a normal and meaningful life.

There are a variety of popular study options available within healthcare:

Diploma in Healthcare

Bachelor's degree in Healthcare

Master’s degree in Healthcare

Doctorate/ PhD programs in Healthcare

Careers in healthcare

Study within a healthcare education can lead to a fulfilling, life-saving career full of interaction and gratification. In order to practice, most healthcare professions require a license issued by the state or country. These are provided by fulfilling an accepted healthcare education program, and in some cases, a general exam.

Many healthcare qualifications also require a period of internship practice before a license for independent practice can be issued. These licenses can be difficult to transfer between countries, depending on the countries' bilateral agreements.

In today's environment, there is a shortage of healthcare professionals, so the job market is opening up to the possibility of international careers with good salaries. Earnings within healthcare vary widely by specialization and country.
