    As a child of a family of doctors in 3 generations now and as a student of a medical university I am so sad that this is how world treats doctors. Patients yell and complain, the hospital administration doesn't hear and the government doesn't pay enough for living. And all of that happens while the cost of actually studying in medschool is rising every year. Just ridiculous. Who in their right mind would want to go through all of this, when you can just leave after 9 grade, study in some college and get a job that pays well and leaves you some free time (and a healthy nervous system) too?

    As a prospective medical student, its easy to see why there is a decline in the number of people willing to dedicate their lives to training to become doctors. Most of doctors don’t finish training until well into their 30s and subsequently miss out on many life experiences. It takes a lot of passion for helping others, otherwise it just isn’t worth it to be a doctor. Like dr mike said, qualified prospective doctors have a variety of other options that are objectively easier, less time consuming, and less expensive to pursue. The amount of training and work aspiring doctors have to do is insane, and continuous for many, many years. However, while there are easier alternatives- becoming a doctor so I can heal others is all I really can see myself dedicating my entire life doing. You really can’t be in it for anything else than that or every day will be a chore to get through.

    Not doctors, but the system they're part of. It's a dogshit system that should focus on prevention over treatment. I'm from Canada and nurses are hugely under utilized. There are brilliant nurses that have the competence and ability to take care of issues that the system forces doctors to look at. You'll get a minor skin issue that just requires a topical ointment, well the doctor needs to sign out on that. A nurse and a pharmacist could easily fix many issues that the system requires a MD.

    I'm an ER RT and I've seen a patient come in, he was inconscious and his family begun chest compression almost immediatly but, without checking for a pulse. They stopped when they realised he was having a pulse but they have done some damages and the patient died during the night... so never do chest compression without checking the pulse FIRST

    Erica S4 soat oldin

    It’s such a catch 22 here when it comes to physicians offices & insurances. Physicians offices having billing reps, so they arent totally blind in what serives cost as the physicians offices are the ones billing claims TO the insurance directly. Claims comes with the billed amt & discounts are placed based off contract, if IN network. Not everyone in the insurance world is making 14 million a year, therefore there are a lot of insurance reps who try hard to advocate for their members, but are limited on what we are able to do. I think there is a huge disconnect with knowledge on both ends. People will only debate what they know, so it’s easy to say it’s someone else who is at fault when you’re really not clear or understanding that side of it. If prior authorizations didn’t exist a lot of doctors could order unnecessary testing. There is also an abundance of healthcare fraud, this especially runs true around the opioid crisis & Medicare. So that one bad apple, ruins it for the bunch. It’s not just one thing, none of this is cut at dry. Too bad we all can’t work together to figure out better solutions.

    Hey Dr Mike, if you're going to throw out statements about high rate of suicide among medical doctors (especially saying they have the highest rates), you really need to back that up with citations. Veterinarians have an insanely high suicide rate compared to medical doctors, and recent studies are showing that healthcare support staff have much higher suicide rates than doctors or administrators (all stats per CDC, via NVDRS). And the highest rates overall aren't even in healthcare. I get that you are an advocate for your field and want what's best for your brethren, but credibility counts, and throwing out false information for the sake of exaggerating your point does no favors to you or your argument.

    I spent a lot of my time in undergrad studying healthcare policy and why healthcare costs are so astronomically high. It is really interesting to see from a physicians perspective because a lot of the time it’s easy to say, “well doctors are incentivized to prescribe more medications and unnecessary treatments to drive costs so they get paid more” because people who are writing these policies and placing blame don’t actually work in the medical field, they don’t have clinical experience, they don’t know what it’s like to be on the other side. Thank you for this video!

    I want to just illustrate something. I am a medical student here down in Turkey, and I was a patient at some point and here is my experience. most people are going for medicine because it is competitive, not as you said "because they want to help people"! that does not imply they are bad, I remember one of the noble laureates in physics said that he went for physics because he did not like other specialties, not because he liked physics! for me as a patient, I truly grew some hatred against doctors, not because of the money they have taken BUT because they are not transparent with the patient we call in medicine the "paternity model" they never explain anything, In remember when the doctor gave me the prescription and I thought it will make me better the next day but after I asked my brother (who is a doctor as well), it turned out to have an affect after two weeks! some of the doctors forget to ask me about the other medicine I am using (as a medical student I know this is very bad, because the contraindication between drugs and a drug and a disease) I think we have to break down WHY people hate doctors, because people hate doctors for different reasons!

They had their own garden and got most if not all meat or produce they couldn’t provide themselves from local farms. The menu was on a constant rotation because the chef had freedom to make whatever they wanted with what was available that week. IT WAS AWESOME! Fresh, local food in the hospital. Amazing.

    Not gonna lie I'm seeing a very consistent pattern. People tend to think negatively of something because they don't know anything about it and therefore are just making assumptions. In short a lot of the issues I see arise because nobody knows the full picture. Where we could do a lot of other things to solve these problems separately we could instead Attempt to get people to be more accepting and aware that they will never know Everything. Nor should they know everything. I find that the best secrets only reveal themselves when you have your eyes open. If you believe you know everything you aren't looking for anything, therefore your eyes are shut. Perhaps all this is too idealistic but I believe in us. I believe that we have the potential and ability to finally quell the internal war between all of us.

    I didn't realize just how many countries it's normal for people to not know their blood type in. India, all kids have their blood type tested before or during school. It's in our school ID card. If not some schools, it's definitely mentioned in our college ID cards, etc. It's also a requirement for obtaining a Driver's license. Mine is A1-ve, you've been blessed with my bloody knowledge. Good day to you! PS Still strange for a doctor to not know their blood group though. I study biotech and in my 5th semester Immunology lab, the first exercise we had was simple blood group testing 🤔🤔

Seeing these articles are intimidating to me and friends of mine who are pre-med as well.

    This whole discussion on the cost of healthcare in the US is irrelevant everywhere else. Yes, sometimes the cost will make people feel stolen from. But in my experience the problem is lack of respect. I started seeing doctors regularly at age 14. At age 34 I can say that the majority of doctors and medical professionals of all sorts don’t listen to what they are told by the patient seeking help. Being repeatedly dismissed, belittle, ignored, and taking medical steps ignoring what the patient is reporting is what creates disrespect for the profession. I regularly see studies released the prove doctors don’t listen to women and listen even less if those women are women of colour. It’s all well and good to say the problem is the cost, but that is hardly the only reason people don’t like doctors. And not believing the patient is absolutely the doctor’s fault and they should take responsibility for that.
