Do you think doctors shold have less extensive medical school practice?

How come a surgeon earns $70,000 for repairing and casting a broken leg? Surely, two hours of even difficulty of this magnitude doesn’t deserve such absurd pay. But you have to consider that one of the things you’re really paying for is giving the surgeon retribution for putting in 12-16 years of time into medical school.

From what I understand that is why medical care is so expensive, and why the general population has to use insurance, instead of paying everything out of pocket, and basically any healthcare crisis.

A doctor should be well practiced and educated, but when is it too much? Are we going to start making doctors do 50 years of medical school so that they will never make a mistake? Many other countries don’t require more than 2-4 years of medical school for doctors, and as such medical care is much cheaper and nobody even needs insurance.

You see the solution to any healthcare crisis we might be in is not Obama’s socialism. It’s less medical school for doctors.

the key words here are "from what I understand"
you got some one your numbers a little off and your logics a bit backwards
you pay the surgeon a lot because if he messes up u will sue him for a lot of money
if the doctors go through less school, they will mess up more and be sued more often for lots of money
do you see where i am going with this?

theres too many factors for there to only be one simple answer such as "make med school less expensive"

try and guess how expensive a cadaver is for a dissection class

  • No..Now should they have any more than they do now? No..But they should have to learn for a good bit if they hold human lifes in their hand…References :

  • Medical school is 4 years. Residency (they are practicing) is 1-8 years depending on the specialty. When has a surgeon gotten for fixing a broken leg? I had a 13 hour operation by a cardiologist in NYC, a high cost area, and it was only $30,000.

    They not only have medical school debt, which can be $200,000 since you can’t work in med school, but they have to fund a practice unless they go into an HMO where they get regular hours. And many MDs pay thousands of dollars a month at minimum for malpractice insurancd.

    What we need is fewer specialists, meaning we need to fund more doctors to be general practitioners and managers of chronic diseases.References :
