Health Information Technology is expected to grow drastically over the next 20 years as medical practices are implementing EHRs to maintain office management and patient records over electronic mediums. Careers in HIT can range from technology focused medical assisting positions to sales of EHR systems on regional or national scales. Government agencies are also seeking professionals in HIT to manage reporting for Meaningful Use, which is necessary for government reimbursement programs that incentivize the implantation of new technology in hospitals and medical clinics.
Your work environment may be travel-based if you are employed by a government body, insurance agency, or pharmaceutical company. If you focus your career on managing and using EHR systems, however, you can expect a working environment within a hospital, small medical practice, or health clinic.

This short video explains the purpose of EHRs and discusses why patients benefit most from these advanced systems.

Paralegals, also known as Legal Assistants, assist attorneys in the delivery of legal services. At New York Career Institute, we provide paralegal courses to qualify students to perform legal work under the supervision of an attorney. Here are just a few reasons to consider becoming a paralegal:
Paralegals have the opportunity to work in a variety of environments as they are needed where there are lawyers! Paralegals are often employed in law firms, government agencies, corporate legal departments, educational and financial institutions, real estate agencies, and insurance companies. By assisting attorneys, paralegals enable the lawyers they work with to provide the best legal advice to their clients.
Law School Options
Becoming a paralegal is an excellent way to explore a career in the legal field, before committing to the time and expense required in law school. If attending law school, a previous career as a paralegal gives you a practical advantage in the classroom.
