Healthcare is one of the largest sectors providing employment in Pennsylvania and registered nurses are among the top positions.


Another healthcare profession, pharmacists work with physicians by preparing and dispensing prescriptions and with patients by advising on the effects of medications.

Software Engineer

Software engineers research, design, develop and maintain software systems along with hardware development. They work in a variety of industries, including medical, industrial and scientific.

Dental hygienists are indispensable members of the dental care team, performing a wide variety of tasks and with a special skill set that crosses both the administrative arena and patient care one.

As dental offices continue to get busier in Pennsylvania (as well as many other parts of the country), more and more employment opportunities are becoming available for dental hygienists.

Medical Administration

Just as dental hygienists are a vital part of the dental team, medical secretaries and administrators are critical to the smooth daily operations of medical offices of all kinds, from general practitioners to specialists.

With the aging population, as well as more people being proactive about their health, medical offices are getting busier and in need of skilled medical administrators to help keep everything running properly.
