Physician assistant jobs in San Antonio climb

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

Healthcare jobs are usually on the rise, and that’s also the case for the number of physician assistant jobs in San Antonio.

But there’s a twist on these jobs.

According to WantedAnalytics, during June 2013, more than 3,400 jobs for healthcare professionals in the United States included requirements for robotics skills and experience.

This is a 32% year-over-year increase compared to June 2012 and more than 375% in the last 4 years. In fact, demand in healthcare now outpaces all other fields that require this skill set, including technology, production, maintenance/repair, and engineering occupations.

Within healthcare, the most commonly advertised job titles that include robotics requirements are:

Physician Assistant
Director of Surgical Services
Surgical Technician
Surgical Technologist
Research Associate

On average, these jobs remain advertised online for more than 7 weeks, meaning that employers are likely to experience a long time-to-fill. Some of the best areas to recruit this talent are Durham-Chapel Hill (NC), New York (NY), and St. Louis (MO). In these areas, hiring demand remains low, yet there are pools of qualified potential candidates.
