Radiology is a great choice for many people considering a career in health care. It gives you an opportunity to use your technical skills in operating and interpreting the results of complex equipment and your people skills while helping patients meet their health care needs.
Another nice thing is the variety in the amount of training needed to work in the radiology field. Everyone from an entry-level radiology technician with a certificate received after one year of training to a radiologist with a medical degree, several graduate degrees, and years of experience has a place in the field.
Just like many of the other health care careers, there’s a current shortage of radiology technicians and radiologists. This lack of qualified radiology professionals is expected to continue for another decade. Employees in radiology have traditionally been paid very well making this an attractive career option.
