This is in regard to the published survey in the Annals of Internal Medicine last month that stated 59% of physicians support universal healthcare. My question is whether or not a comprehensive survey of all physicians of different specialties was conducted. I will accept the fact that a majority of general practitioners support Universal Healthcare, but what about specialty physicians who spend several more years training and have greater on-call schedule than general physicians. I find it hard to believe that this group of physicians would be in support of a government-run healthcare program, considering that they would not be compensated as fully for their services. Everytime I see such sweeping claims for Universal Healthcare, I really wonder who would benefit the most and who would not benefit. Sure, it's not all about money, but it is common sense to think that less physicians would seek specialty training given that they would not be compensated as fully for more hours and a longer period of training. Does anyone else have this suspicion about the survey? I would like to see how physicians voted via a specialty breakdown.
