Students are typically expected to take a wealth of science courses such as biology, chemistry, nutrition, and anatomy. Courses in psychology and genetics may also be required in more advanced programs. Students are usually instructed using examinations, lectures, and other assignments. At the end of their studies, students should be able to understand basic bodily functions and illnesses.

Earning a certificate in health can provide students with a variety of professional and personal benefits. After finishing a program, the majority of students report earning higher wages and gaining access to more career advancement opportunities.

The cost of acquiring a certificate varies from place to place and from school to school. Program duration and program competitiveness also impact costs. For more in-depth financial information, students should contact their school of choice directly.

There is a multitude of career options available to health students. The majority work in the healthcare field as educators, teaching future generations of nurses, scientists, and researchers. A small minority choose to remain in an academic environment, performing experiments and research in order to advance their understanding of the human body and its processes. Other health scientists work as consultants, helping government agencies and private institutions with public health issues.
