A goal of the APRON Lab is to help students at community colleges and universities understand and prepare for the opportunities and challenges of automation and for careers likely to be affected or created by automation. Starting this fall 2020, teams of students at the University of Texas at Austin created career profiles, which we are sharing here with their permission. Completed as a part of Communicating with Patients (CMS 330P), the profiles focus on work in healthcare.
