Student loan debt is soaring. In medicine high debt load is increasingly one factor that drives medical student's choice of specialty. Could human capital contracts be a plausible solution or the next form of indentured servitude?
Since this is not a medical blog where patient encounters are to be discussed, I am not sure how necessary this is. But given the nature of our lawsuit-happy society, it can't hurt to have a disclaimer. I do spend a significant amount of time at hospitals, so some medically themed stuff may make it into this blog. Rest assured that I have been HIPAA-trained and do not include details about patients' identities on this blog. Please do not use anything on this blog as a substitute for visiting your physician or your local Emergency Department if you need medical advice or urgent treatment. Thanks for visiting and enjoy the blog.
