Mississippi Health Careers Guide 2008-2010
The Mississippi Health Careers Guide is a comprehensive resource guide created to provide information on 93 health-related careers utilized by the Mississippi health care industry. This guide provides information on work environments, educational requirements, average salaries, and educational institutions that have training programs for the careers.

Many people choose health-related fields because they like to help others and because the work can be very exciting. However, other important factors for choosing a healthcare career are job availability and security, career portability, scheduling flexibility, and financial compensation. Many health care workers earn more money and have better benefits than equally trained people working in other fields. Like many states, Mississippi has a shortage of trained health care workers, which means that there are more jobs than there are health professionals to fill them.

This Guide was produced by the Mississippi Hospital Association Health Careers Center in partnership with the Mississippi AHEC and the Central Mississippi Planning and Development District. The health care industry serves a vital role in the economic and physical well-being of every Mississippi community. A recent MHA healthcare economic impact study showed that more than 59,872 individuals work in Mississippi’s health care sector, and health care contributes more than 10.1 billion dollars to our state’s economy.

Our goal in the production and distribution of this guide is to educate students of all levels, dislocated workers, and recareering professionals on the opportunities available in healthcare. We hope that by revealing these opportunities, more individuals will choose to support their families and communities by entering a healthcare career. If the current healthcare workforce shortages continue unchecked, we will all be affected and our health may ultimately suffer.

The guidebook is completed and published for distribution. The HCC is currently sending a guidebook to each high school, college, public library, and member hospital in the state of Mississippi. Along with these physical copies, we have a pdf version of the guidebook that you may download to your computer. For personal purchase and additional copies, the guidebook is sold at $30.00 plus shipping.
