read a recent article on heart surgeons losing their jobs because medical technology is keeping chronic heart patients alive without the aid of going under the knife.
I don't know if you could use the word 'losing their jobs' since there are a shortage of physicians and dentists in America and the world at large. These 2 fields are usually the most stable in the US because there is a shortage of them in the market.
A heart surgeon on average would have to go to Uni for 4 years, 4 years med school, 6-9 years surgical residency, with all that education + training, there is actually a shortage of them.
That's the reason why I thought this question was pretty stupid. Because physicians and dentists are in demand in the US.
