I have been reading a lot about health reform and the need for it in America. I want to support a system to provide healthcare to everyone at a low cost and with good results. But the vast majority of books talk about the system from the outside. I am also surrounded by political speculation all over from both sides. My question is: how do salaries compare in other countries with those of physicians in America? As an American, I want to a universal system to fix this incredible problem, but as a future physician, I clearly don't want to do this at the expense of myself. And most books on the subject aren't thinking of physician salaries. So can anyone give me input? I am interested in any kind of universal system. Anyone?
