    No. It doubles the POOL OF MONEY paid to doctors that teach. Meaning it can offer more dough to recruit the badass guys who draw in the patients and also happen to walk by students in the hallway and say "hello". Its fluid funds that don't need to be accounted for in terms of salary or per patient "fees" to draw top doctors. Nice PR though.

    Harvard is flithy rich, this is like me dropping a nickel and not bothering to jump in the ocean to find it. A small sum for a rich group.

    Reminds me of two consecutive Harvard articles a few years back, more geared towards their undergrad. One earlier in the week was students protesting the administration for keeping the wages of its janitorial and support staff egregiously low, close to minimum wage and not at all near livable wage. Later in the week, there was an article talking about the 19 billion Harvard endowment... 19 billion. When Harvard drops a nickel they don't jump in the ocean to find it... because the nickel is actually a rare $1000 gold coin... and the ocean is actually a whole damn warehouse the size of Rhode Island full of them.
