The short answer is absolutely yes. There are quite a few legit medical related small business opportunities (Including franchises) available in the market place today for entrepreneurs to start up with new business models and opportunities arising all the time. Much of the growth in this business category can be attributed to new market opportunities emerging as a result of our exploding senior population in the USA. The recession proof nature and generally high profit margins of the medical and healthcare field has also made this a very attractive and popular category to start a business in today. This is bolstered by the fact that the healthcare industry has managed to add new jobs nearly every month over the last few years despite the great recession that started back in 2008.
