I recently had a preceptorship with a FP doc that told me that many of his pharmaceutical sales reps make more than him (more than $85K/year). I couldn't believe this. He does work in a rather impoverished area and has many patients on Medicaid. But still, this struck me as ridiculous. I also read recently in the USA Today that in many states in the country Pediatricians can expect to make less than Vets. While I understand that the problem here (assuming you see this as a problem) is much larger that what a thread on SDN can hope to tackle, I was wondering if any of you other fellow med students out there felt that the idea of offering a business class in your curiculums might serve to remedy this problem in the future. I say this because it seems to me that the doctors out there who have preceded us have been ill equipped to handle the pressures being put upon them by lawyers, politicians, insurance companies, etc. to take away the standard of living they have earned and deserve. I see this as an osteopathic problem even more so than an allopathic one given the large numbers of PCPs DO schools produce.
