Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Medicine field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Medicine majors need many skills, but most especially Reading Comprehension. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Medicine majors need more than the average amount of Science, Judgment and Decision Making, Instructing, Reading Comprehension, Active Learning, Service Orientation, Complex Problem Solving, Critical Thinking, Writing, Social Perceptiveness, Active Listening, Monitoring, Operations Analysis, Speaking, Management of Personnel Resources, Learning Strategies, Time Management, Persuasion, Systems Evaluation, Negotiation, Coordination, Systems Analysis, Management of Material Resources, Mathematics, Management of Financial Resources, Quality Control Analysis, Programming, Operation Monitoring, Troubleshooting, Technology Design, Equipment Selection, Operation and Control, Installation, Equipment Maintenance, and Repairing.
These two visualizations, one a radial chart and one a bar chart, show the same information, a rating of how necessary the following skills are for Medicine majors. Toggle between "value" and "RCA" to see the absolute rating of that skill (value) and the revealed comparative advantage (RCA), or how much greater or lesser that skill's rating is than the average. The longer the bar or the closer the line comes to the circumference of the circle, the more important that skill is. The importance of Science is very distinctive for majors, but the Reading Comprehension, Critical Thinking, Active Listening, Judgment and Decision Making, Speaking, Writing, Complex Problem Solving, Active Learning, Science, Monitoring, Social Perceptiveness, Instructing, Service Orientation, Time Management, Coordination, Learning Strategies, Persuasion, Management of Personnel Resources, Systems Evaluation, Systems Analysis, Negotiation, Mathematics, Operations Analysis, Quality Control Analysis, Operation Monitoring, Management of Material Resources, Management of Financial Resources, Troubleshooting, Programming, Technology Design, Operation and Control, Equipment Selection, Installation, Equipment Maintenance, and Repairing are the three most important skills for people in the field.
