Students wishing to pursue a higher education in the fields of Health and Medicine will participate in a variety of courses, designed not only to enable the practice of good health but also the education of proper public health procedures to the general public. A degree concentration in areas of health and medicine is a broad interdisciplinary area of study that encompasses many attributes to the efficient operation of a health care organization.

Health education is a popular concentration within the field of study. The coursework emphasizes the education of common people about general health. A professional health educator can enter career opportunities with environmental health, physical health, social health, emotional health, intellectual health, and spiritual health organizations. Education about health and disease prevention is a critical goal of health care providers as it leads to best practices in promotion, maintenance, and restoration of health.

Health science is another branch of higher education. The science focuses on two integral approaches to health: the study and research of the body and health-related issues to conclude how humans function, and the application of the learned knowledge to create, improve and perform treatments to prevent and cure physical ailments. A degree in health science will build on the core understandings from biology, biochemistry, physics, epidemiology, pharmacology, medical sociology.

Primary care medical services are provided by physicians, physician assistants or nurse practitioners in physician offices, clinics, nursing homes, schools and home visits. Most medical issues can be treated by a primary care provider.

Secondary care medical services are provided by specialists in offices, clinics or hospitals for patients first diagnosed at primary care facilities. Medical services provided can be out/inpatient services, emergency rooms, intensive care medicine, surgery services, physical therapy, labor and delivery, endoscopy units, diagnostic laboratory and medical imaging services.

Tertiary care medical services are provided by special hospitals or regional centers equipped with state-of-the- art diagnostic and treatment facilities. The types of facilities include: trauma centers, burn treatment centers, advanced neonatology services, organ transplants, high-risk pregnancy and oncology.

Modern health and medicine practices offer careers within advanced organizations providing all levels of patient care. Students wishing to earn a degree in the health sciences are subject to strict legal, credentialing and licensing standards established by national, state and local governing agencies.
