The Paramedic Perspective
It is time for a mentally sluggish society to slam the door on the healthcare hoodwink. Hear it clearly: there is no 'doctor shortage'. What we do have is a primary care shortage. We have medical schools spawning a glut of high-pay specialists, and a system which rewards the excess. What we do not need is evermore technology, endless research and specialists on every corner. What we absolutely need is decent, back-to-the-basics patient care providers, and a system with the courage to recognize simple truths.
