There is a lot of buzz out there about how Millennials are changing healthcare. This generation, born between 1980 and 2000 is highly educated, self-confident and technologically savvy. They use the Internet to self-diagnose, are highly distrustful of brands, and are very in tune with their health – exercising and eating healthier than previous generations.
But while many focus on how Millennials are consuming healthcare, something important goes overlooked: how Millennials are providing healthcare.
That’s right, older Millennials will be turning 35 this year; and those who have chosen a profession in medicine will be finishing their residencies and taking over hospital wards and doctors’ offices worldwide.
These Millennial physicians are bringing new ideas about what’s “in” and what’s “out” when it comes to practicing medicine, where they get information and what they expect from the companies they interact with.
