27 Jul The Top Medical Specialties with the Biggest Potential in the Future
Some say technology will replace 80% of doctors in the future. I disagree. Instead, technology will finally allow doctors to focus on what makes them good physicians: treating patients and innovating, while automation does the repetitive part of the work. While every specialty will benefit from digital health, some will especially thrive due to these innovations. Here, I enlisted the medical fields with the biggest potential for development in the future.

We would not need doctors at all eventually, he added.
