BehindTheMedspeak: Episode 2 — Is your doctor a quack?


Well, that didn't take long, did it?

I raised the AFLAC question just yesterday and already the MM (I guess that means "mainstream media" — it's a terrible term/abbreviation and it will not appear here ever again, I promise or you can personally feed me a pound of Sherwood Premium gold–foil–covered chocolate coins) are taking it to the next level.

Just this morning, for instance, I was standing there walking along on my treadmill (but striding differently than the day before) when, on page 6D of today's USA Today, I was greeted by the headline above over the paper's story by Elizabeth Weise about a study published today in the New England Journal of Medicine demonstrating, with scientific rigor, that doofus medical students make doofus doctors.

Gee — I could've sworn that I figured that one out about a zillion years ago.

But I guess not until it appears in the august pages of the New England Journal does it become a fact instead of a supposition.

Anyway – here's a link to the journal article's abstract.
