Medical care--South Carolina--Statistics
The allied health professions and occupations, as a group, make up one of the largest segments of the healthcare workforce in South Carolina. The anticipated annual openings associated with the groups listed in the table above sum to a total of 1,053 openings each year. The rate at which these individual occupations are growing varies widely, and may change over time as medical treatments and technologies advance. Note that there is no direct relationship between the total percentage change expected in employment demand for a particular group and the average number of openings expected. Some very large groups (i.e. EMTs and Paramedics) are expected Most Allied Health Fields are Growing in South Carolina to have only a small growth rate from 2008 to 2018 - 8% - but are expected to have a relatively large number of jobs open each year. In the case of EMTs and Paramedics, most of those annual job openings will be due to the need to replace those expected to leave the workforce, rather than from new job growth. On the other hand, most (75%) of the growth anticipated for medical assistants is expected to come from new job growth.
