Health Sciences

Today, in the western world at least, humans are living longer: life expectancy has now reached 75 years. This is largely due to advances in the health sciences – our understanding of the human body and major maladies has brought more effective treatments, preventive and curative interventions (such as vaccines and antibiotics), and more refined surgical procedures. However, with heart disease, cancers, stroke, diabetes and obesity on the top ten list of fatal diseases in the western world, and population at an all-time high, the need for more health care professionals is greater than ever before.

Get Qualified:  ADL offers a variety of pre-medical courses, ideal for those wishing to work in the health care industry, including an Advanced Diploma in Medical Science.  And there are many fields to cover – from audiology, counselling and dentistry, to nursing, nutrition and sonography

Change of Career:  Sarah, a student in her late 30s, gave up her office-based career of ten years to embark on Occupational Therapy training. She says, “For the first time in my life I’ve found my vocation – now I go into a hospital every day to work, and find myself really making a difference to stroke patients confined to their beds. If I can bring a smile to their faces or make them laugh, it makes my day.”        

Learn Something New:  There are many fulfilling and less traditional jobs in the field of the Allied Health Professions...there are, for example, art/drama/music therapists; orthoptists; orthotists; prosthetists...as well as the more familiar occupations...dieticians, physiotherapists, radiographers and podiatrists. Whether you wish to teach aerobics or practise acupuncture or learn more about general health and well-being, ADL can provide courses for these subjects and many more...and all from the comfort and convenience of your home.

 Professional Development: For those wishing to embark on a rewarding career in medicine (including preparation for WHO medical universities), complementary medicine or an allied health and para-medical field, ADL’s Advanced Diploma in Medical Science (Pre-Medical) is an ideal and intensive preparation.

You'll receive unlimited tutor and admin support  and be able to start at any time.

Health science jobs are found at a variety of different levels. For example, you could work in a hospital, office, clinic, or nursing home. Or you could work on a cruise ship, at a sports arena, or within a patient\'s home. The health care field unlike many declining industries is growing rapidly. In the United States alone, the U.S. Department of Labour expects health care will generate 3 million new wage and salary jobs between 2006 and 2016, more than any other Industry. The worldwide demand for Health Science workers is outstripping supply and will continue to grow for many years to come. Perhaps the biggest benefit of being a Health Science professional is that you will make a difference in peoples lives. The courses listed below have been designed to get you started on your Health Science Career.
