    My cousin is doing this. He will eventually run a clinic on his own.

    And my info is from academic studies and reports.

      can would be eye-opening if most people could hear what is being taught in medical classrooms at the moment. Even college professors are screaming at their students to wake up before it's too late...but they just don't get it.

      •  I'm sure you could repeat this info (3+ / 0-)

        without breaking any confidences. Please do.

        Let us all have the strength to see the humanity in our enemies, and the courage to let them see the humanity in ourselves.

        •  In general terms, they're telling students (0+ / 0-)

          that we're all getting royally screwed and if we don't start fighting back, then we're going to discover that we've been had, but it will be too late.

          Many of the professors are saying that they have become healthcare activists because of what they see happening in the medical field (especially to elderly people).

          But what is more amazing is that they are affirming the information that teacherken posted on this site when he said that students entering college now are unprepared for academic studies. They have literally been screaming at them that they don't have critical thinking skills. In other words, the conservatives have managed to dumb down America to the point that our students are in serious trouble. They won't be able to compete.

    •  Still need an MD involved somewhere (1+ / 0-)

      I think nurse practitioners and physician assistants are very useful for providing medical care, though there are limits.

      "Minute Clinics" or similar are fine for simple issues. However, anything more complicated needs MDs involvement.
