The sad fact is that physicians may often be the most vocal of the opponents of healthcare reform. Again, nervous and anxious about the future. I do NOT believe that physician income will be touched in this endeavor. I think it is just the anxiety of financially conservative people trying to preserve their turf
For students and residents, this is the time to often disregard the negativity of those who are supposed to be your leaders and role models.
This is the fundamental idea at the center of “Routine Miracles” which is to get our older physicians and faculty to take a good, hard look at the negative attitudes that they are passing on to students. The worst of which is: fear healthcare reform!! expanding coverage will damage our incomes”
Guard your mind.
