This country must make “private” medical education completely separate from “publicly subsidized” medical education. That includes facility subsidies, participation in Government funded research, loans to both institutions and students, and free access to the fruits of Government funded research.

Those who are trained with Government money should be required to provide public service on a mandatory basis. Those who pay for their own training should pay for use of Government funded technology inventions as well.

Time for one of the biggest “free rides” in the USA to come to an end. This is a major reason we have the most expensive and least effective medical system of all industrialized countries.
