Studies show that by the year 2025, the United States could face a shortage of almost 100,000 doctors unless corrective actions are taken. Just in time for students who are applying to schools, Mediaplanet’s cross-platform edition of “Careers in Health Care” will showcase the amazing opportunities that are available to students exploring what their career options are and highlighting the many way to achieve a medical degree or certification.

U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek Murthy, graces the cover of the print publication. Through an exclusive interview with Mediaplanet, Dr. Murthy explains how he was inspired to practice medicine at an early age by his father, who was also a doctor. “Early on I learned that medicine is about more than making diagnoses and prescribing medicine,” he states. “It is about building relationships with people; relationships that are based on trust and mutual understanding.” He touches on several important health care topics including the importance of prevention and emotional well-being. “We have spent relatively little attention on emotional well-being, which is vital when it comes to improving health”, says Dr. Murthy. As Surgeon General, Dr. Murthy also spends time promoting equity of access to health care for all, saying that “we are one of the richest countries in the world, but we have such a wide disparity in terms of access to care and health care outcomes.

The print component of “Careers in Health Care” is distributed within the weekend edition of USA Today with a circulation of approximately 750,000 copies and an estimated readership of 1.3 million. The digital component is distributed nationally through a vast social media strategy and across a network of top news sites and partner outlets.
