Health Science

Are you thinking about a career in the health sciences? There are plenty of choices. Health science encompasses a broad range of occupations and specializations. And with an ever-growing and aging population in our society, the need for skilled professionals is booming in every area in the field of health science.

What is Health Science?

Health science refers to those interested in the delivery of health care to humans and animals through the application of science, engineering, mathematics and technology. In other words, it is the field in which knowledge is taken from pure science and other related sources and applied to practical and clinical practices to maintain and improve the health of living beings whether it be mentally, socially for physically. The branches of health science are virtually endless, with traditional and conventional Western medicine as well as alternative and folk medicine. Broadly defined, it can even include spiritual-based healing processes.
