Preventive Medicine Physicians

Outlook

The U.S. Department of Labor reports that physicians and surgeons, not listed by other specialties, will have faster than average employment growth through 2026. A major factor in this increase in job opportunities is population growth, particularly among the elderly, which means greater demand for preventive medicine physicians. Also, more people have access to medical insurance, through public and private plans, so more people will be seeking diagnostic tests and treatments to reduce and prevent diseases and illnesses through both private plans and public programs. More preventive medicine physicians will also be needed for public health, research, rehabilitation, and industrial medicine. New technologies and remote monitoring will also enable physicians to treat more patients.
