Because you need to do a lot of tasks that are too complex for robots. You also have to communicate with patients, a new early impossible future for robots.

Robots will never substitute us, is not possible because we are taking care of other persons, solving real problems and there is a different solution for each person in the earth. A machine could repeat processes, make different things, but they will never be able to empathise which is absolutely necessary in our job.
