In times before video conferencing, medical professionals had to travel to physical locations in order to share their knowledge and skills with colleagues. Granted, not everyone could afford to take a break from their hospital duties, so many doctors were simply left behind. 

This is not the case in the 21st century. Nowadays, doctors can connect to a video conference during their lunch break and get all the latest industry news and updates. They can discuss various treatment methods and innovations, share helpful tips, and overall be a part of the healthcare community. 

Video conferences in healthcare help build trust and improve communication between employees, as evidenced by research from Forbes Insights. Trust is crucial in the healthcare industry, where people need to act as a team and face difficult decisions on a daily basis. Medical students also benefit from video conferencing, since they no longer need to travel halfway across the country to observe rare operations. They can just connect to the special telepresence tech and watch the surgery in real-time. Because more students can connect to a video conference than fit into an operating room, more will have this opportunity to learn and grow as medical professionals. What is more, they can watch a surgery recording later to cement their knowledge. 

All these factors level the field for doctors all over the world and make it easier for everyone to succeed. Doctors that have better career opportunities are more motivated to be good at their job and continue improving their skill set.
