  • When becoming a medical doctor was highly desirable, entry to a medical school was the initial achievement. Now it seems to have been thrown open to any naive aspirant? Many of whom will see the light and bail out fairly promptly?

  • I hope they can teach them good medicine ..looks like it's going the technician route.
    Probably better to train plumbers and proper builders as nation needs houses. Google can help nurses run much of the nhs.

  • This seems the perfect opportunity for the global pharmaceutical marketing machine to take over command and control of undergraduate medical training.

    Having perfected marketing-masquerading-as-medicine in CME, and hence appraisal and re-accreditation, their influence and manipulation of the entire medical profession will be complete.
