There are many benefits to working in the medical field. The largest one is the fact that you can work side by side with trained and skilled professionals in the medical industry. You can learn hands on what the products are that are available, what services the public can take advantage of, and even career advancement based on quality recommendations. The other fine benefit that you can receive is the day in day out experience and exposure to major advancements in the medical field. This means that if you choose to advance your career, you will be leaps and bounds ahead of your competition.
The satisfaction of knowing that you are in a respected field should be a benefit in and of itself, but really the paycheck does speak louder. The medical field can be quite lucrative, especially in certain niches. For instance, if you were to work with Oncology patients, or another type of specialty field, you will find that the pay rate is much higher for these types of careers in medicine. General practitioners tend to take on as many patients as possible so that they can have a steady revenue base, and supplement the costs of what insurance companies cannot or will not pay. This means that it is possible for a doctors office to not make very much money. Specialist, however, are much different. They tend to have a higher pay rate because their type of work is either limited or so special that insurance companies have no choice but to pay the bills, as the competition is simply not available. As an employee in these offices you can expect to earn on average 35% more than a traditional situation. This also applies to hospitals. If you area is deemed a Title I recipient area, do not expect higher pay. However, what you lose in pay you gain in priceless experience.
