"The world needs more health workers. The global population is growing and aging—by 2030, there will be at least 300 million
more people aged 65 years and above than there were in 2014. This demographic shift, along with changes in diet, pollution, and other factors, are driving an alarming increase in the incidence of chronic
illnesses. At the same time, humanity is facing a sharp resurgence of antibiotic-resistant infectious diseases
. Meanwhile, new opportunities for personalized care driven by genetics, genomics, immunotherapy, and integrative therapies are beginning to change the skills required to power the modern health system."
