HEALTH CARE CAREERS
DFW AHEC coordinators provide information which help the underserved enter and remain in health care. Some resources are listed for you below.
One of the best resources to find out about all the health career opportunities in Texas is H.O.T. Jobs. The catalog and companion website contain information on over 80 careers, including what you can expect to earn within each profession and what qualifications are needed to pursue particular careers. More importantly, H.O.T. Jobs lists the colleges and universities which offer degree programs for these careers. Some additional elements of H.O.T. Jobs include tools to help students discover which career is right for them, how to prepare for professional programs, and information on how to get started. H.O.T. Jobs is online at www.texashotjobs.org, or in a printed version which can be obtained from the DFW AHEC office (see map). To Order the Brand New 4th Edition H.O.T. Jobs Guides, click here.
