While the roles of physicians and nurses often define the health care field, the bulk of health services are actually provided by other professional specialists, acting in either administrative, educational, or direct care capacities. As the health care field expands and grows, these specialists will be in high demand, and the University of Michigan-Flint Department of Public Health and Health Sciences faculty are well-positioned to give you the knowledge and skills needed to take advantage of these multiple career opportunities.
