There's never been a better time to join the healthcare industry. It's booming. The industry doesn't need a doctor to check out every sore and sniffle. The medical profession has nurses for that. We certainly need more doctors, but those with nursing degrees are going to be very valuable when 30 million more people with insurance go to a hospital for a problem.
More states may grant Osteopathic degrees the same leverage as MD degrees, like Iowa and New Jersey, which opens up the door to more people.
This gloom and doom from a professional doctor's association is a little short-sighted. "More people have access to health care, I'm pissed!"
