The Golden State may be sunny in disposition, but its number of employed healthcare workers is bleak. This is especially true in the field of gerentology. As the Baby Boomers age, there become fewer healthcare professionals, and the demand for employment in the health field dramatically increases. It is estimated that there is only one general practitioner certified in geriatrics for every group of 2,500 elderly Americans. There are roughly 4 million California residents over 65.

Luckily, California’s many community colleges and universities are working to address this and many other issues. New programs are developed every year with the object to combat the growing shortage of healthcare workers. Whether you are through with school, you are looking to relocate, or you are choosing to advance your career, California offers a wealth of possibilities in the healthcare field.
