We tackle issues that matter to doctors

Ep. 3 Should doctors protect their turf?

We discuss a “white paper” jointly written by Jeffrey Flier, former dean at Harvard Medical School, and Jared Rhoads, from the Dartmouth Institute, calling for some deregulation of the apparatus that rules the supply of physicians and their scope of work.  We touch on the question of safety, patient sovereignty, alternatives to licensing, and whether protectionism is ever a legitimate option.
