If doctor's salaries are cut, I wonder if medical schools will cut tuitions too.
A top administrator just came and spoke to my class about the future of healthcare reform. He spoke glowingly of Obamacare and followed up that support with a statement to the effect of, "we're all going to have to experience cuts - hospitals, physicians, everyone". I wonder if there will be commensurate cuts in medical school tuition. That would just make sense. If you're going to cut physician salaries and ask us them to suck it up for the common good, you need to reduce the cost of becoming a doctor. Something makes me doubt that that will happen.
