    On doctor's wall, an MBA

    This article was also picked up by a Business Week blog here:

    So what do you think? Is an MBA worth your time?

    I was planning on an MBA starting March '09, but I may put it off a year.

    /. yep. doctors are caught in this flood of patients in an intolerable system. time to fix the system. and you can't do it seeing patients one at a time. so get busy fixing it.

    hopefully i wont need an mba to do it. but we'll see.
