What The Medical Field Is Looking For In Its Future Workforce

Although the economy and job market is currently strong, a skilled workforce will be key to sustaining it. For human employees to stay relevant and more valuable than machines, training on the job will be critical.
In healthcare, the medical robotics market is valued at $7.24 billion and is predicted to grow to more than $20 billion by 2023. With this movement accelerating, it only puts more urgency on humans to adapt to new role or learn the traits that will be valued going forward.
