More Proof There Is No Medical Malpractice Crisis

Comments Off

According to amednews.com (The Newspaper For America’s Physicians), liability issues are becoming a lesser factor in specialty choices by medical student’s. The 2006 National Resident Matching Program held March 16 provided proof that medical students are more concerned with lifestyle concerns. The results established matches for 85.1% in Family Medicine; 97.9% in Internal Medicine; 97.9% in Obstetrics/Gynecology; and 96.5% in Pediatrics.
The number of Neurology candidates was also steady. So much for The Big Lie that America is losing its doctors. Tort Deform proponents never let the facts get in the way of a good story.
