A growing population that lives longer

Perfect for a career in Health Care:

Health Care is one of the fastest growing careers.

According to most studies of careers and “top careers of the future,” Health Care is one of the fastest growing fields in the United States. There are a few reasons for this conclusion, the first is that people are living longer.  In addition, the population is growing. This means more people, living longer lives, all needing health care. Lastly, many of the jobs necessary on Health Care cannot be automated. They need to be administered and assessed by a real person so human resources are needed and the prediction is that they will be needed for many years to come. This is creating a huge demand for professionals across the spectrum of the health care industry.

Serve a vital social need and start a career.

Because of this, your choosing a career in health care is not only smart from a matter of practicality, but also serves a vital social need. These days you do not necessarily need to pursue a clinical role, such as a doctor or nurse, to find a stable niche in health care. There are many ways to help serve patients and the wider community from the perspective of health and wellness. One way is to start your career in health care by pursuing an Associates Degree offered by Mandl School.

You can be working 2 years faster than those getting a 4 year degree.

If you are eager to get started in a health care career but don’t want to spend a lot of time in school, an associate’s degree program can get started in approximately two years.  At Mandl, we offer our students internships at numerous hospitals and medical facilities so you are gaining practical experience even before you graduate. An associate’s degree enables you to put a credential on your resume and start working in your field two years before your peers, who chose to pursue a four-year bachelor’s degree.

An associate’s degree in health science is not merely a stepping-stone. It launches a fulfilling career that will serve you for a lifetime. However, if you additional career ambitions, your education can help you continue towards a bachelors degree and your experience will certainly help you continue your career journey.

Health Care careers are some of the most well-paying jobs in the world.

Health care careers embody some of the most gratifying and well-paying jobs in the world, according to such reputable resources as Forbes and Business Insider.

February is Heart Health Month

Hand making heart

This February is heart health month.  A time to think about a vital organ that has multiple meanings.  General health, spiritual health, love of friends and family and a time to think of others.  As one of NYC’s oldest medical training schools, we’ll focus on the health (and encourage the spirit and love!)

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. Every year, 1 in 4 deaths are caused by heart disease.  In the United States, the most common type of heart disease is coronary artery disease (CAD), which can lead to heart attack because of decreased blood flow.  Fortunately, you can greatly reduce your risk for CAD through lifestyle changes and, in some cases, medication.

The good news? Heart disease can often be prevented when people make healthy choices and manage their health conditions. Communities, health professionals, and families can work together to create opportunities for people to make healthier choices.

Make a difference in your community: Spread the word about strategies for preventing heart disease and encourage people to live heart healthy lives.

Heart Health

How can February American Heart Month make a difference?

We can use this month to raise awareness about heart disease and how people can prevent it — both at home and in the community.

Here are just a few ideas:

  • Encourage families to make small changes, like using spices to season their food instead of salt.
  • Motivate teachers and administrators to make physical activity a part of the school day. This can help students start good habits early.
  • Ask doctors and nurses to be leaders in their communities by speaking out about ways to prevent heart disease.

How can I help spread the word about Heart Health?

We’ve made it easier for you to make a difference. This toolkit is full of ideas to help you take action today. For example:
