EduMed knows that higher education can be the ticket to a rewarding career in medical and health. We also know that every student needs different things when it comes to education, whether a fully online program to maximize flexibility or help finding and securing financial aid or scholarships. To get students moving in the right direction, we work with hundreds of healthcare and higher education experts to provide well-researched and user-friendly content, from detailed school rankings of schools and programs to interviews with online program leaders at colleges and universities across the country. Learn how EduMed can help you succeed.

What We Do

Finding the right education and training program is no easy task. You may think it begins with the programs and schools, but it really starts with a clear understanding of who you are and where you want to go. EduMed takes a four-pronged approach to helping students make their career dreams become a reality.

Detailed career information

Our Careers section explores a wide range of professional opportunities in one of today’s fastest-growing fields. Learn which careers offer the highest salaries, the quickest training, and allow you to make a difference in your community.

How to become

2. How to become

Once you have a career in mind, it’s time to learn how to get there. Our How to Become section breaks down the education and training options for dozens of medical and health careers, including campus, online, and hybrid learning.

Online education success

3. Online education success

Although online education has become mainstream, it can be tricky with medical- and health-related training. For example, how can you enter a patient-focused career with an online degree? We show you how online learning works in healthcare, when schools use it, and how your clinicals come into play.

Financing your education

4. Financing your education

Finding your dream career and the degree program to match are both fantastic, but it may be hard to finish if you don’t have the funds. Our financial aid and scholarship pages connect students with schools, non-profits, and other entities and information that can make paying for college within reach.
