Dr. Frank’s Answer




Overall employment of physicians and surgeons is projected to grow 15 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations. The growing and aging population is expected to drive overall growth in the demand for physician services.


In addition, the demands for physicians and medical professionals will be faster than the average for all other occupations. Job growth is projected due to increased demand for healthcare services by the growing and aging population.

Estelle’s Answer

Absolutely, yes. There are ample job opportunities in the medical field for physicians and physician extenders like nurse practitioners and physician assistants. The aging population of baby boomers along with longer life expectancy means increasing demand for healthcare providers. The road to a medical degree is long and arduous, but the benefits are definitely worth the efforts.
Good luck!

Richard’s Answer

Yes. As the population ages, there may not be enough physicians to care for the increasingly ill population particularly in the smaller cities and towns.
