Medical Sonographer

➽ MEDICAL SONOGRAPHER
The overall quality of health care in the U.S. has improved because doctors are able to
catch and treat diseases earlier than ever. Technology is a big reason why. Noninvasive,
straightforward procedures give doctors an up-close look at a patient's organs, muscles,
and joints. And medical sonographers are becoming increasingly important players in
providing the kind of accurate diagnoses that physicians need to keep patients healthy.
Medical sonographers use specialized training to operate equipment that utilizes highfrequency sound waves to create images of the inside of the body. Sonographers often
specialize in examining specific areas of the body, everything from the female reproductive
system to the organs in the abdominal cavity. Breast sonographers work to detect tumors.
As the population ages, there will be an increased need for skilled medical sonographers.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) predicts job growth of 24 percent between 2014 and
2024 and estimated the median salary of medical sonographers in 2016 at over $64,000.

WHAT THEY DO: Perform
diagnostic sonographic
procedures using various models
and manufacturers of diagnostic
sonography equipment, recording
and storage devices, computers,
and accessory equipment.

POTENTIAL EMPLOYERS:

ISTOCK

➽ INDUSTRIAL PSYCHOLOGIST
A lot has been written recently about how machine learning and
automation have transformed the workplace in ways both good
and bad. While it's undoubtedly true that machines and
technology will continue to replace more and more people in
certain jobs, the reality is that we humans will always be
fundamental to the efficiency and profitability of companies. In
fact, as technology takes on a bigger and bigger role in the
business world, the performance of individual employees will
become even more important. Maximizing the productivity of
workers is the job of industrial-organizational psychologists.
These professionals use their education and training to make
leaders and employees more effective. This can sometimes mean
devising training programs, coaching executives and workers, or
developing policies that attract and retain the very best
employees. The need for industrial psychologists is growing, with
the BLS estimating that job growth in the field from 2014 to 2024
will be much higher than that of the average profession.
