THE LOOMING MEDICAL CRISIS IN AMERICA
As Physicians with seven to sixteen years of postgraduate training, and several years of practice experience,
Are replaced with Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, and soon Drug Assistants,
With one to two years of postgraduate training, or six months of drug dealing in the case of Drug Assistants,
A medical and societal crisis looms in America, unless this ugly trend is reversed.
If American Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners are excellent, and can replace physicians in all practice settings,
Why not Assistants in every profession or is American Medicine, the easiest profession?
Nothing is more irking than going to a premier American Medical Institution, expecting to consult with a world-class physician,
But is consigned to the services of a pseudo-physician, who bills at the physician rate.
Aren’t these Medical Pretenders supposed to serve in physician shortage areas or are they supposed to replace Physicians?
With American Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners replacing “underperforming” American Physicians,
America should close all her medical schools and churn out millions of Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners,
For world-wide export, boosting foreign reserve earnings and enhancing America’s goodwill.
With so many rusticated and PTSD-afflicted physicians, who are trained to heal and kill, roaming the landscape,
And the easy availability of guns and drugs, a deadly societal crisis is looming in America.
When will American Physicians discard the AMA and form a strong Trade Group to fight commercialized medicine?
Instead of forever bending to accommodate every useless regulation emanating out of Washington written by lobbyists?
The future is indeed grim for young Physicians and aspiring Physicians in America.
Africastallestman can only foresee a looming crisis for healthcare in America.
