Regarding Bill aims to increase ranks of physicians, nurses:
Given the significant increase in the cost to receive a medical degreethe best and brightest in the U.S. are going into significant debt to practice medicine, a profession with limited income. Doctors work long hours, have tremendous responsibility, must maintain high-cost malpractice insurance and find the money to pay off their loan which can easily be in excess of $300,000. A medical school students perspective on their future upon entering medical school in 2009: I guess there is no family or house in my futurejust debt and long hours of work. Yes, they are willing to do this because they are passionate about the science and delivery of medicinebut should their future be one of the added stress of high debt?
