Across the world, there are plenty of job sectors that are seeing a worker’s shortage. Construction, air traffic controllers, technology, and manufacturing are just some of the industries experiencing a worker shortage.

Perhaps more alarmingly is the fact that the medical world is also set to experience a worker shortage. Many countries are set to experience a shortage of qualified doctors over the next decade and some specialties are hurting more than others.


So, which are the medical professions that are the most in-demand? Let’s take a look.

Epidemiologist

Try saying that five times fast. Epidemiologists are in charge of looking for potential diseases. They are also in charge of testing and searching for potential vaccinations for terminal diseases such as HIV and cancer.

Epidemiologists are more likely to spend their time in a lab instead of dealing with patients but nonetheless, their work is incredibly important for the well-being of people.

Family Medicine

A very broad term, but family physicians are in charge of just about everything. They are the ones to diagnose injuries or illnesses of the general population. If you’ve ever gone to the doctor for a routine checkup, you’ve just had an appointment with a family physician.

The position is set to grow by about 10% over the next five years, meaning there is a huge need for family physicians to keep up with the growing population.

Psychiatrists

Not to be confused with psychologists, psychiatrists are those that diagnose and help treat any mental or behavioral disorders. They work with both children and adults alike and can be seen working in labs as well.

The need for psychiatrists is growing as well, expected to grow between 10-14% by 2026. The position is being hurt by a large number of retirements and fewer people pursuing a residency in psychiatry.

Neurologists

Neurologists are responsible for diagnosing and treating diseases that affect the nervous system. Your nervous system includes your brain, spinal cord, muscles, and blood vessels.

Neurology is what doctors refer to as a “consultative practice” as they often treat patients who are suffering from strokes, seizures, or other disorders.

Urologists

Urologists cover a wide range of areas for both men and women, as they examine the urinary tract, bladder, kidneys, and more. When it comes to diagnosing and treating, they will look at both benign and malignant disorders.

Despite its specialty, the position is also expected to grow faster than the national average over the next five years, meaning there are plenty of employment opportunities.

Cardiologists

Dealing with matters of the heart (only medical issues, not love-related issues), cardiologists are set to experience a shortage in the next coming years.

Cardiology is also one of the highest paying medical professions in the world, especially for those who are involved in invasive procedures and surgery.

Nurses

We’ll take a step back from talking about all the doctors and talk about another staple of the medical profession: nurses. There is currently a huge shortage of nurses in India as the number of nurses available is dwindling and unable to keep up with the current population growth.

Nurses do not have to go to school as long as doctors do and don’t earn as much, but they are still a vital part of any clinic or hospital.


Above table shows that how much do physicians earn.

Dermatologists

Often one of the most sought-after professions in the medical world due to its high-pay and somewhat normal schedule, there is also a projected shortage of dermatologists over the next five years.

These doctors are in charge of treating various hair and skin disorders. They will often diagnose skin cancer, inflammation diseases, and even tumors.

Radiologists

Radiologists are considered to have one of the most stressful jobs in the medical industry which may explain why they are currently experiencing a work shortage.

These medical professionals are in charge of performing x-rays, monitoring radioactive substances, and MRIs.

Last on our list are podiatrists, who must examine the conditions of feet. They will prescribe medications, physical therapy, and even surgery for those that may need it.

They treat any bone, muscle, and joint issues when it comes to your feet and ankles. They’ll keep you walking around!

It is believed that when a woman goes through her menstrual cycle, she goes through the different lunar energies.

Well, if you'll notice then the moon takes twenty-nine days to complete its lunar cycle, whereas women's menstrual cycle is generally 28 days! Coincidence? I think, not.

Hugs, caress scenes, extramarital affairs, vulgar and bold dressing, bed scenes and intimacy of married couples are being glamourised in utter disregard to Islamic teachings and culture of Pakistani society," PEMRA stated

The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has directed Pak TV channels to stop airing what it calls indecency and intimacy in dramas, Samaa TV reported.

A notification issued by the authority states that it has been receiving numerous complaints from viewers who believe that the content being depicted in dramas does not represent the "true picture of Pakistani society".

"PEMRA finally got something right: Intimacy and affection between married couples isn't 'true depiction of Pakistani society and must not be 'glamourized'. Our 'culture' is control, abuse, and violence, which we must jealously guard against the imposition of such alien values," said Reema Omer, Legal Advisor, South Asia, International Commission of Jurists.

"Hugs, caress scenes, extramarital affairs, vulgar and bold dressing, bed scenes and intimacy of married couples are being glamourized in utter disregard to Islamic teachings and culture of Pakistani society," PEMRA stated, as per the report.

The authority added that it has directed channels time and again to review content with "indecent dressing, controversial and objectionable plots, bed scenes and unnecessary detailing of events".

Most complaints received by the PEMRA Call Centre during September concern drama serial "Juda Huay Kuch is Tarah", which created quite a storm on social media for showing an unwitting married couple as foster siblings in a teaser for an upcoming episode. However, it only turned out to be a family scheme after the full episode aired, but by that time criticism had mounted on HUM TV for using the themes of incest to drive the plot, the report said.
