Re: Doctors office has cut me off because I declined an appt with a female doctor and instead asked for a male doc.
There could be 100,000 new trained and qualified doctors on the street in 4 years, if the system wasn't set up based on greed. Physician training is done at the college level, and admissions are politically controlled. Each Medical School can only accept a certain amount. It is a delicate balance not to flood the market with new physicians, just like any business.
Also, general medicine (OB/GYN, Famlily practice, internal meds) are the lowest paid doctors. Some might only make 150k a year, and have 500k in loans to pay for. But, if you don't want to spend the extra 250k or more to specialize, you will get a lot of the lower tier doctors in these general non specialized practices.

Nope. Almost. You need a Bachelors (or at least satisfy all the pre-Med requirements of extensive Biology, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physics, Calculus. That takes four years.

Then you take the MCAT and pass it.

Med school is at the Graduate level, not college level (that's undergraduate work).

Then you apply for medical school with both recs from your Science and non-Science courses. Usually at least four. Many science professors actually think of themselves as gatekeepers to eliminate students here. Hard to believe, but true nonetheless.

Then the long weed out process, interviews, acceptance, and huge loans. Usually $250,000-500,000. The reason this is so expensive is that many students need money for housing for their spouses and children because it takes soooooo lonnnng. Then many end up going out of state, and hence the tuition costs are DOUBLE. That's right, you pay double!

We can't accomodate all of the people who are qualified. So many end up doing something else.

Then you do two years of Basic Sciences. Then two years of Clinical Medicine. This is the four years of medicinal school.

Then at least three years of Residency to get into Family Practice, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Dermatology. Then many specialize and do three more years. Three to Seven years of Residency.

So from college to finishing, but not including fellowships, for they can add 2-5 years, then 4+4+3 or 11 years minimum.

If the USA doesn't wake up, and continously puts people in the pipeline, then it won't equal the attrition from physicians leaving due to illness, retirement, going into research, changing careers, going into business, etc.
 Quoting: Don'tBeAfraid


Thanks, I was generalizing. But, I'm sure there are plenty of students in college right now that have the pre-reqs and can't get in. The admission into med school is where the roadblock is.

Maybe I should say 5 years. Accept more into med school, 4 years of med and 1 year residency into general medicine. Your 3 years of residency is misleading, as most of your residency is practically paid training. Of course, standards are different everywhere.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25931667


Wrong. While residents are paid, it's $50,000 for up to 120+ hours. So it ends up being very very low pay per hour.

There is no 1 year of residency. The only two year residency I know of is some few Dermatology residencies, most are three.

Everything I posted is based upon the USA model. It can be quite different elsewhere.
[link to healthcareers.about.com]
" How Long does Medical Residency Training Last?
Medical residency is a minimum of three years for primary care physicians and some other specialties, up to five years for some surgical specialties. (Some medical specialties require additional years of fellowship training in addition to the three to five years of residency training.)

Do Residents Get Paid, and If So, How Much?
During residency training, residents are usually paid about $40,000 to $50,000 per year to help pay the bills. They are paid a minimal salary because medical residents are not fully licensed to practice medicine, and therefore residents do not independently bring in any revenue for a medical facility. Instead, residents are physicians in training, working only under the supervision of an attending physician, who is ultimately responsible for the patients being treated by the medical residents."
 Quoting: Don'tBeAfraid

Wow you are argumentative. 50k per year is still paid and its not poverty level. You can moonlight in ER's if you want to also and make $100 an hour. Is it a lot of education requirements? Yes. Is it impossible? No. Do you need to do a year long general surgery rotation to be a pediatric specialty? Debatable.You know the details and I'm not arguing it anymore.

The biggest hurdle is getting in. If you don't know someone, or have perfect grades and MCAT, you don't get in. They only accept so many so that we are herded like sheep through the offices and they can obtain maximum profit.

 Quoting: Debauchery


For the most part, that is a very true statement... Learned it the hard way. My first OB damn near make me cross eyed doing an exam.... The male doctors are much easier....
I had a woman doctor for my kids.... Big mistake in choosing her. My youngest didn't talk or respond to being spoken to at a year old. Every time I mentioned that he does not appear to hear me, she said I'm the problem, not him. For a year she told me that I'm the problem... Turned out my son could not hear. I changed doctors and he got the operation he needed...
The doctors office we go to has 6 doctors in it. They always ask for a preference when I make an appointment for me or my kids....

But still..... It's YOUR child and your paying for the care. They don't have the right to tell you who you see. Call them back and ask for a doctor by name, have 3 names to give them. If they won't see your child let them know you will be taking you medical care, and your money, somewhere else.

My point is that is, you posted a lot of misleading information. I think we both can agree that the process is so long, and we're not keeping up, but falling behind at a time when we're adding tens of millions of new patients. Something has to give. People expecting personalized treatment is not realistic.

If you moonlight, then you're not studying. If you've got time to moonlight, then you're not working those incredible number hours and extremely lucky, and usually people who moonlight are a rare breed in their last year of residency, and a risk to the medical staff because they're not licensed and must be watched over carefully.

People should know that a med student doesn't have much a choice about clincal rotations as they are set by the med school, so you're point about peds doing a surgical rotation is moot, for it's required! There's no med school that I know of where a med student in clinicals could avoid doing a surgical rotations.

Your facts are way off there Hoss. First it's four year, but I prove it's not. It's 11 minimum.

The biggest problem is a lack of med schools. It's that simple. If we doubled the number of med schools, back a decade ago, we'd probably be fine. Now, it's too late, and we have a ton of very sick overweight people (Baby Boomers) who are needing care. The system will collapse. People will have to delay surgeries.

As soon as you start making money, you can't defer much, but must start paying all of those loans back. So if you're making your 40-50K, then a ton of it is going out. It's why a lot of med students who have spouses are really only making it because their spouses are busting their ass to pay off the loans. It puts enormous stress on the marriages and so with everything else, the divorce rate is much higher.

There's a cost to becoming a doc. It not like it used to be, and people griping about "I wanna female doc, or I want a male doc." quite frankly is silly. If you feel that way, then pick another team of docs because most of them have to switch it up.

Here's a realistic explanation of moonlighting from a medical source and dealing with the issues of only being able to work a set number of hours as well as it happening in the last year of residency.

I think the lack of new doctors can be broken down to lower admissions so that profits stay high and competition is deflated. Nobody really looks at this as an issue and I would love to see the media dig into it for data collection.

You sound like someone interested in medicine. If so, I hope you can get perfect grades and navigate through the morass that is the journey to becoming a physician. Good luck.

Lowering admissions will not help. It would mean making already very crowded courses even fulled. What we need is more schools. That's easily done, for the cost of not having an adequate number of physicians is dangerous.

Folks, a lot of people could be RNs. The problem is that the attrition is HUGE over a seven year span. It's a sucky job, but it pays well. You actually can become one with an Associates Degree in 2 years. They claim that your opportunities are less, but that's bogus.

A ton of RNs have left the field because they took Medical Informatics jobs. That's the computer database system for tracking patients' history. Then a bunch will automatically apply and get placed in pharmaceutical sales for having clinical experience, being pretty, and knowing the doctors means half the battle of pushing drugs on physicians to recommend to their patients. Both have really created a big loss of RNs.

If you're a parent and wanting your teenager to have a career that will provide a fast return on investment plus job opportunities later, than nursing is a good fit and should be explored. It's almost guaranteing a paycheck for them.

False.

"According to the AMA website, in 1970 fewer than eight percent of physicians in the United States were women. According to the 2011 Physician Characteristics and Distribution study, by 2009 that percentage had increased to thirty, and the number of female doctors had grown by more than six fold. Women have made and continue to make vast progress in the field of medicine, and there have been many exceptional female doctors whose accomplishments deserve to be celebrated."
30% are women.

By the time Basic Sciences are up(end of the 2nd year) many men and women have been weeded out. It's a rigorous process, however,

 Quoting: Don'tBeAfraid

California is bankrupt. If nurses are willing to relocate, I'm sure they'll have no little issue of finding work. There's the rub. Many are in relationships, don't want to move, are married, are mom's and would have difficulty moving.

The tough part is putting up with the BS. A RN is the last protection for the patient when a doc screws up on medication dosages...and believe me it happens a lot. There's been studying showing that many docs work so many hours as to be mentally impaired in a state almost approximating inebriation in some cases.
[link to www.nytimes.com]

Meanwhile the RN must be very vigilant to ensure the dosage is correct, and it's complex too, for if the patient is very overweight, and it's an absorption issue, or the patient is young, or the patient is female or the patient has liver or kidney issues (and hence affects metabolism of those drugs), etc.

Re: Doctors office has cut me off because I declined an appt with a female doctor and instead asked for a male doc.
So I called my docs office this morning, asked for an appt for my child. They had an opening tomorrow but it was with one of their female doctors. Well I wasn't interested so I told them as much, politely of course, and I asked to see a male doctor instead.

Wouldn't you know it..they mysteriously and suddenly have ZERO openings, for a month, to see a male doctor. I was rejected. wtf

What the fuck is going on with people these days?!!? I thought it was my right to choose a doctor I was comfortable with.

Respect your patient's right to choose their doctor freely, to accept or reject advice, and to make their own decisions about treatment or procedures. Smiley

OP I understand exactly how you feel and I aree with you. That Doctors office had declined a resonable request without even giving you an explanation. And you are paying for the visit after all.

No wonder your penis did not work in the other thread!

I might prefer my son "mishandled" by a woman than sodomized by a male doctor"

If thats what you fear ......amazed

Try complaining when you can't find any doctor.
 Quoting: MHz


Why wouldn't I be able to find any doctor?

I live in America, not some 3rd world country and since I do live in America I should be able to choose whichever doctor I want without getting the shaft because I don't want to see one that has a vagina.

And that's why your behaviour is unacceptble. If you're a 1st world citizen, then act like one and don't be a medieval psycho.

It's assholes like you that are the problem.

I'm a psycho because I prefer male doctors??

Who the fuck are you to tell me who I can or cannot choose to treat my child?

I PAY for their care.
 Quoting: Debauchery


I'm actually a true freedom lover, not a hypocrite like people like you; and i recognize their right to tell you to GTFO. Sure you have a right to be a douche too, but that doesn't mean people can't react and give you a "hint" about your douchebaggery.
