    Med school, one of the few places in need of nurses and doctors. My brother’s oldest daughter was accepted into a nursing school.

    Med school continues to be the best career investment that one can make. There’s always a job out there, waiting. Don’t cry for Drew.

    And the assistant superintendent asked me if residents of the county had higher degrees would the per capita income go up. Heck, the waitress at Cracker Barrel has a master’s degree.

    Hey, it’s not cheap trolling for that med student!

    I wouldn’t encourage anyone to go into the medical or health field at this time. I have been in practice for over 30 years. It has become more and more about filling out forms; and less an less about the patient.

    Two days ago Alex wondered why her babies haven’t bonded to her. Today, being married with twins makes her feel like her life hasn’t started. That answers that.

    I was in an adult class with a dentist, and he said that business for him is terrible in this area (St. Petersburg, FL). The place is way over-dentisted. Maybe if Drew will seek out a remote town without a physician . . .

    @George Alexander

    Considering the number of med students who wash out, how hideous the student loan debt is, and how difficult it is to find a decent residency and then job (after sometimes well over a decade of low-paid, overworked indentured servitude), no, it really isn’t.

    i’m a headhunter. i used to think that the safest jobs were the ‘hands on’ jobs, plumber, electrician, etc. AND, medical/dental jobs. i was wrong. when you can go to costa rica (i went to the cavallini clinic) and get better care, more advanced care (they have their own labs in manyof the offices there) and get 8 implants, 24 crowns, all the xrays, ct scans, molds, night guards, gum reshaping, and many more things thrown in…. for under $13,000- why would ANYone still go to our dentists. the biggest benefit of going outside the states is the compassionate, personal care you get. the fact that it’s about 20% of the cost in the states is just icing on the cake.

    for whatever reason, medical/dental is now overpriced both in the cost of the education and the cost of services to the clients, in the states. when my dentist here in the states told me with a straight face that i should just take amortgage out on my house to pay his estimated $100K treatment plan, i knew this was the end of our dental system as we knew it.

    oh… and i got sick on the plane on the way down to costa rica and had to go to emergency down there. a state of the art hospital, 2 doctors checking me out using every test possible, 2 bags of iv ringers, 1 bag of iv antibiotic, an intern at my side the whole time and all meds, including some to take home with me, and even a blanket to take home- total cost, $368.48. yep. total. no insurance. that’s the retail price of their medical care.

    we’d better wake up in the states. single payer is used throughout the civilized world AND third world countries. despite our much higher cost of care, our mortality rates are not as good as theirs. plus, the nonsense stories you hear about waiting months for emergency care are bunk. other countries laugh at us for our primitive delivery of medical care. because i’m proud to be an American doesn’t mean i accept lies as truth because some loudmouth slaps the Flag across it. we’d better start listening and changing!
