How might general practice look in 2050?


"personalised care guided by genomic medicine" Sounds like an extension of our current risk factor management work to me. If the future is going to be using genetics for more screening, more targeted health promotion, increased preventative intervention and less time to deal with the actual problems patients already have then I can't say it's a vision that would inspire me. After all, who ever applied for medical school driven by a passion for assessing statistical risk?
