Masters in Healthcare Degrees in Maine

It’s no secret that health care is a vital industry in Maine — it’s the state’s largest industry, employing more than 75,000 people and accounting for 14% of the state’s total wages, according to a healthcare workforce brief posted by the University of New England. Thanks in large part to the state’s growing elderly population, two-thirds of Maine’s fastest-growing jobs are also in health care, which tends to provide more services to older adults.

Maine has particular shortages of primary care physicians, nurses, oral health and mental health professionals, pharmacists, and physician assistants, most of which require advanced degrees, the UNE brief noted. For this reason, health care professionals with a Masters in Healthcare in Maine may be able to set themselves apart for some of the best careers in healthcare management and clinical leadership in the state’s hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, medical practices, psychiatric hospitals, and other health facilities. Maine was home to 1,550 medical and health services managers in 2011 who earned an average annual salary of $81,170 in 2011, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
