The health services and support field encompasses a wide range of professions relating to health and welfare. Some health workers will focus on administration, others on education and some will work for public health organisations.
Degrees in this field will not always be called ‘health’ or ‘health science’ — many will be named after their specialisations, such as a Bachelor of Dietetics or Bachelor of Paramedicine. While some health science degrees are quite broad, many will be specifically focused on preparing you for a particular occupation.
