As the 2020 election draws nearer, M4A and it's proposed changes are certainly on the minds of many healthcare workers. I just wanted to start a discussion on your thoughts about how European physicians view their careers (through the socialized healthcare lens) and what M4A changes would mean for this field, and what your thoughts on how medicine will look in 5-10 years post M4A.
Bernie Sanders' favorite study on M4A's economic benefit came out of Yale and one of their conclusions was this:
Sanders himself has said that he doesn't think that extreme degree of compensation cut would lead to a passing of a M4A bill, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't worried about my earning potential being cut nearly 40%. I'm, like many of you, still in debt, and while I didn't go into medicine with the end goal of making money, I didn't just give up over a decade of my life simply because I'm a good person.
Looking at the potential M4A changes vis-à-vis the compensation and job satisfaction of our counterparts across the Atlantic, I find it hard to encourage younger generations to pursue this noble field if all it's going to get them is debt, stress, and lack of job fulfillment.
