« Anesthesia and Flying | Main | Narcotics Prescribers Beware... »



Mike, I think one other issue for academic medicine is the amount of debt incurred as a medical student. The goverment has not only cut funding for research but for student education as well. It is hard to live on an academic salary with $200,000 in school debt. I don't care how inquisitive or academically bent a person is that is an unsustainable level of debt on 110k/yr.
When I left U of C in 1990 I owed $185,000 in med school debt. Roizen couldn't afford me.
