Doctors can carry out a wide range of tasks related to prophylactic and preventive medicine, diagnosis, therapeutics and research.
The most common career option is medical practice, in the private or public sector, but there are other possibilities, like medical research or teaching.

The health sector is expected to have great employment potential in the coming years. Great advances in biomedicine and technology are bringing about constant changes to healthcare systems. To face the new challenges there is a need for professionals and research teams working on new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, who, along with professionals in healthcare, prevention and management, can improve the use of the resources allocated to health.
