The new federal health-care law has raised the stakes for hospitals and schools already scrambling to train more doctors. Experts warn there won't be enough doctors to treat the millions of people newly insured under the law. At current graduation and training rates, the nation could face a shortage of as many as 150,000 doctors in the next 15 years, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges. That shortfall is predicted despite a push by teaching hospitals and medical schools to boost the number of U.S. doctors, which now totals about 954,000.

People are thinking twice now about even thinking of attending medical school. On top of everything else in the health care bill (law now actually) its making this problem much worse.

When we need more soldiers we just drop the standards. When we need more teachers we just drop the standards.

We need doctors. What will we do?

Yup.

Lack of other people going to medical school is no excuse to deny someone affordable medical care.

In many professions, it is mandated by the professional association which you must be certified by, the standards for any certified university program. Within those standards, there is a professor/student ratio that must be met...

This is a little known fact that contributes tremendously to the back log of admittance to many graduate programs. Funding for or shortages in the field, of professors, will directly contribute to the number of graduates accepted to a program on any given period.

This will have an impact of far greater reaches than medical school, alone. Consider it to be all health related fields and than contemplate the numbers from there...

That sounds weird. Like having no tomatoes around is not an excuse to deny people ketchup? I guess you could crap in a tube and call it ketchup.

People not wanting to attend medical school? It could have everything to do with the Codex Alimentus allowing 7 of the 12 previously banned POPs into circulation and attempting to quash natural medicines, the majour world health charities supporting the masonic heirarchy and perpetuating ill health through standardized drug and chemo barbarian medicines, or perhaps modern medicines tendancy to consider every human trait under the "cancer-causing" sun as a disorder.

I suspect it will attract the type of applicants they are looking for though, those who seek control over others, monetary kickbacks from plenty of prescribed drugs, and free reign to spy on citizenry.

Obamacare and Bill C-6 will link us to the Codex. It's our largest sellout yet to the nwo.

This is another angle of the wall street how to rob us. I know a person who graduated medical school but cannot find internship. He told me that many of the program graduates cannot find internship. Some of them opt to go for PhD. some are changing their discipline to become pharmacist and other profession. So to say that Colleges cannot keep up is ridiculous.

The medical profession keeps its numbers artificially low so doctors can make more money. Maybe we need to add more seats to our medical schools.

Even in "evil" socialized countries, being a doctor is still a good job. European doctors may not make over $500,000 a year, but they live fairly comfortable. The European medical profession has no problems attracting qualified people.

If we add more seats to our medical schools, we will still have plenty of qualified people to fill them. The medical profession will always be a good job, even if doctors cannot make $500,000 while spending 40 hours a week on the golf course like they did in the "good old days."
