Last week's HEALTHCARE DESIGN poll asked:

In response to the AIA awarding its Young Architects Award, do you feel that young architects are drawn to the healthcare field?

0.00% - Yes, we see a lot of young architects

53.85% - Yes, the ones that have been introduced to the field are interested

46.15% - No, we don’t find that many young architects are interested in the field


- Many recent graduates are interested in architectural design or computer modeling, but many do not want to spend the time to learn the many influences on healthcare planning, or worse yet, there are not enough healthcare architects to mentor them.
