University of Phoenix® College of Health Professions and the School of Advanced Studies recently conducted research to come up with key healthcare industry findings for the Greater Phoenix region. Commissioned by the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce and produced by University of Phoenix, the whitepaper includes an industry snapshot and original research on in-demand jobs and skills and a look at how the industry may evolve in the next five to 10 years.

“The healthcare infrastructure in Greater Phoenix has grown steadily and the industry is expected to continue this strong growth,” said Hinrich Eylers, Ph.D., executive dean for the School of Advanced Studies at University of Phoenix, which conducted the research for the whitepaper. “In order for that to happen, it is imperative that the region understands the dynamics of the healthcare industry and the unprecedented changes that it is currently undergoing.”
