2021 Health Trends

The experience of working as a healthcare professional was a very uneven one in 2020. Some were overwhelmed by so much work and heartbreak, they struggled mightily with burnout and despair.

Others were left looking at empty practices and operating rooms, wondering how they would be able to recover financially and how their patients were truly faring without them. Many treated COVID-19 patients without proper PPE. These dynamics are driving career reconsiderations and have changed views of their lives and medicine.
