The 50 Best Careers of 2011

US News and World Report has released an article where they feature the "50 Best Careers of 2011." As expected, a number of those careers are in the health care industry.

Here are the health care careers that they picked:

• Athletic trainer
• Dental hygienist
• Lab technician
• Massage therapist
• Occupational therapist
• Optometrist
• Physician assistant
• Physical therapist
• Physical therapist assistant
• Radiologic technologist
• Registered nurse
• School psychologist
• Veterinarian

So, I see that physician isn't on the list. What does this imply? Does it suggest that physician careers are not so appealing if they're not considered one of the 50 best careers?  Maybe this is why so many physicians are looking for alternative careers outside of clinical medicine.

Here are their picks in the business and finance category this year:

• Accountant
• Actuary
• Financial adviser
• Financial analyst
• Logistician
• Meeting planner
• Public relations specialist
• Sales manager
• Training specialist
