Health Careers in Columbus

Health Careers

22,534 job openings a year. That's the estimate for the Ohio health care job market through the year 2020.*

Columbus State is the perfect place to get the education and training you need to prepare for those jobs, many of which require only an associate degree to enter. Our Career and Technical programs provide training for many fields that currently have unfilled jobs, such as Medical Assisting, Dental Hygiene, Heath Information Management, and Sports & Exercise Studies.

If you're planning to continue on for a bachelor's degree in the medical field, our Associate of Science degree fulfills the first two years of study, allowing you to transfer seamlessly into a health-related major at one of our many partner colleges and universities.
