Problem with our medical education system
Three unfortunate outcomes are:
Physicians who go into teaching turn around and use the same tactics that were modeled to them because those are the only tactics they know. This is self perpetuating.
Even worse, some physicians use these tactics with great gusto because for a moment, they have the opportunity to feel powerful superior to the student by humiliating him in front of his peers, staff and even patients.
Do u agree? Read the following post, its really good...
Physicians complete their education trained to keep a low profile and go into self-protection mode when challenged. In my opinion, this is one of the root causes for the great shortage we have in the number of physicians willing to step up to the challenge of leading the change we so desperately need in healthcare.
