The ROI of Pursuing a Career in Alternative Medicine



Careers in health care are among the most lucrative and rewarding careers. Within the health care field, complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is unique. Compared to traditional Western medicine, CAM seeks to provide a much less invasive and more holistic approach to the health of a patient. CAM practitioners identify a patient as a whole person rather than simply a collection of symptoms and conditions.

More hospitals, clinics and private practices are integrating this type of care into their services by employing both mainstream medical techniques as well as complementary and alternative medicine. This integrated approach involves a wellness-based model of care as opposed to a disease-based model of care. Preventative lifestyle changes, low-tech, and low-cost measures are put into place with CAM patients before pharmaceutical or invasive procedures are considered.

In addition to being passionate about this approach, with the high cost of a medical degree, you need to be confident that the return on your investment will be worth it—especially if you take on debt to finance your degree.

Fortunately for those interested in a CAM degree, the career outlook for complementary and alternative medicine practitioners is excellent.

How Alternative Medicine Helped Me Have a Natural, Unmedicated Birth

  

Elizabeth Toth, Communications Coordinator at National University of Health Sciences, shares how alternative medicine helped her have a natural, unmedicated birth. 

When I found out I was pregnant, one of the first things that came to mind was what childbirth might be like. I had images of women screaming in pain, cursing their husbands, begging for drugs. With how birth is portrayed in movies, it's no wonder I was a little nervous about it.

While giving birth in real life isn’t exactly like that, I still needed to educate myself and prepare for the experience both mentally and physically. For most doctors, giving birth is considered a major medical event. Luckily it was one I could prepare for.

7 Financial Questions You Should Ask Yourself When Considering a Medical Degree

The rising cost of higher education is old news at this point, but most people would be surprised to find out exactly how much a medical degree, either in traditional medicine or complementary and alternative medicine, costs today.

In the past 20 years, average tuition and fees have increased over 165% for private medical schools and 312% for public medical schools. The average debt with which medical students leave school has also increased dramatically: today, most students graduate with an average of $183,000 in debt.

If you’re going to spend $25,000+ a year on an education, you need to be confident that the return on your investment will be worth it—especially if you take on debt to finance your degree. That’s why it’s important to take the return on investment (ROI) on your degree into account, and discuss your financial aid options with a financial aid advisor before deciding to take out loans.
