This white guy doc agrees with all you say.
Plus, what others do not think about, is the young folks who come out of med school anywhere from 200-500k already in debt, and then come into a system that doesn’t want to pay them.
Who in their right mind would want to do that? A young person wanting to be a doc in modern American must approach it with missionary zeal, because that’s what it’s similar to.
Every doc I know who has kids interested in health care are trying to get them in DENTAL school, which has so far (but not for long) appeared to escape the brunt of Obamacare.
It’s a mess for which their is only one solution - a 2 tiered system, and the Obamaphiles ain’t gonna like that.
Or my daughter, who is using her GI bill to become a nurse anesthetist.
Don’t bank on a dental future. I’m a retired DDS who knows many grads with $200,000+ debt and no place to practice ‘decent’ dentistry. Many end up working in ‘dental mill’ clinics. I have personally steered many youth out of the Medical/Dental fields. Unless you have a strong humanitarian urge, stay away.
what does a two-tiered system look like? I keep thinking about private and public schools....
