re: Keeping La-trained doctors in the state for residency proves to be a challenge on MatchDay - Hopeful Doc
[quote]Sixty-eight percent of doctors who complete all their training in one state end up practicing there[/quote] I was reading through to see if someone posted this stat. I often see it quoted as a percent that practice within 100 miles of where they did residency and it was also upwards of 70%...

re: Drug companies protected by FDA and patent law raise prices in unison again - Hopeful Doc
I agree with many of your points, but [quote]end the need for prescriptions for many common antibiotics[/quote] This is a very bad idea. They aren't harmless and already far overprescribed. Reducing their use is the goal, not allowing anyone who thinks they need one (when probably in my office ab...

re: Drug companies protected by FDA and patent law raise prices in unison again - Hopeful Doc
[quote]We can immediately allow uses of known compounds regardless of the intent of the use. In other words no bureaucrat has to approve the use of a compound that has known hazards for any use a doctor decide. If all we want the FDA to do is to warn of hazards why should be care if Doctor Joe think...
