WeBuyAndSellJunk Posted December 5, 2015 Share Posted December 5, 2015 I don't mean to imply that medical school is for men only with that title, but more so that it is the only accepted pathway to becoming a doctor. With such a shortage of providers, especially in primary care roles, I struggle to understand why the system can't value experience, individual skill sets, and current competency as sufficient in some regard. Obviously, further education is warranted, but there is such a huge pool of capable people that don't really require the traditional 4+residency route. I think this system is going to collapse relatively soon, but docs I've talked with disagree. It hasn't been sustainable for several years. Why is it persisting in this country? What gives?
