Would you still want to become a physician if the government passed "Medicare for all?"
Roughly 37% of the country is on some type of government health insurance plan (Medicare/Medicaid/CHIP/VA/etc). Medicaid pays for about 40% of all births. The rest are either uninsured, on Obamacare or have insurance through employment. Do you think it would be with it to go through medical school & residency if we were under a Medicare for all system?

Fired from one pharmacy, hired at another?
Hi, so here's the story: I have a friend who works as a Pharmacy Tech at CVS. While he was on break, he was checking out his emails and he came across something that was definitely NSFW. He wasn't showing it off to anyone, but one of his co-workers accidentally saw it. He was then pulled aside by the lead pharmacist who brought out the code of conduct and reprimanded him. She also had him write a statement about it, and he was sent home early. Is it possible he may be terminated for this?... Fired from one pharmacy, hired at another? (Source: Student Doctor Network)
