Healthcare 2020:

Inside stories on medical careers in Hong Kong

The professional roles of medical, healthcare & pharmaceutical sectors have evolved significantly in the last decade due to technology advancement, new standards of care, and ageing populations. Gaps in the healthcare talent pipeline have challenged both the sector, and students who seek careers in it. It is essential for students to understand the latest trends in healthcare sector so they can focus on the skills and to make the transition from school to workplace. What will the healthcare careers look like in 2020 or 2030?
