Maybe you should put a little disclaimer in your signature so that people don't assume you are an expert on graduate medical education, because the types of statements you make certainly imply that YOU think you are.
Speaking as an "outsider" around here (starting MS 1 this year, haven't posted much on this forum before, but am interested in learning more about primary care) and therefore presumably the type of person you might be concerned will get the wrong idea from Panda's posts, I'm not getting this at all. It seems to me from reading some of his previous posts and his blog that Panda:
1. Respects/likes FM in general
2. Always wanted to do ER, even before he started FM training
3. Thinks the FM program at Duke stank
4. Thinks most other FM programs are perfectly fine
5. Thinks there's a bit too much PC in the medical world in general, and that it was especially odious at Duke.
I haven't seen anything in his writings that led me to question whether or not FM docs in general get adequate training, or suggesting the he regards himself as the local deity in matters of residency training.
