Reading through these boards about lifestyle/compensation for a doctor I thought of something. If there were no student loans ( medical school would be free) and if you did not have to pay malpractice insurance once you became a doctor, and everything else remained the same, school work, residency training, etc, but you only made 50 K a year, would you still do it? I wanted to start one of those poll things but I don't know how. I am interested in your opinions, this is an anonymous forum so please don't be shy. Thanks, Fritz.
