According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, employment for all physicians and surgeons is expected to grow by 4 percent, about as fast as the average for all occupations, through 2029. Employment prospects for urologists are good. The demographics of American society illustrate that the growth in the aging population will increase demand for services that cater, in large part, to them. With baby boomers aging, the need for qualified urologists will continue to grow. The coronavirus pandemic in 2020 has had a major effect on medical practices and protocols across all specializations. Many physicians and surgeons, including urologists, are including video appointments (telehealth) in their medical practices. These practices are expected to continue into the coming years. Employment growth is also expected for urologists and other physicians as more people have access to health insurance through the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
