    *"Surgeons are being told 'Hey buddy, you gotta hurry up those operations; squeeze in a few more cases."* I am a 61 year old surgeon in California, and this is completely true. I have been yelled at by administrators for taking too long to perform life saving surgery. Thank god the millennials are fighting the system. I sit here with tears in my eyes so happy that change is coming with the next generation. Doctors and nurses devote their lives to caring for the sick, not to making profits for greedy pharmaceutical and insurance companies.

      Canada has 20 million working age people who are paying the majority of the taxes.
      The average doctor isn’t a poor person, they are very wealthy even with the amount of schooling. But there are tens of thousands of jobs that have that much training and more yet those people make less than a third what a MD makes.

      Be proud that you survived a system that placed productivity over quality. Your patients will be forever grateful, let's hope health care in the future changes. Wellness functional holistic care, with pressure from managers enabling good patient outcomes, not savings.

      Hello borther, actually I am a Z gen High School student hahaha, but I want also like millenials to change the World and especially médecine. I did a lot of research and hesitate now beetween medecine and bioengineering ( with all the possibilities with biotech). So based on this logic of always innovate and create in order to save people lifes in a big scale, what should I do?

      no offense but the baby boomer generation that's been running our gov't is not going to be around for very long, biologically speaking. this kind of unmotivated uninspired idea does nothing to help our society move forward. millenials (not all ofc) have seen the consequences of ww1 and ww2 and the trump presidency and all the horrible things that have occured before we became of legal age to do anything about it. we are going to make that change. support us, don't discourage us. society has a way of moving forward. we're all in this together!

      Let me dissuade you then. Doctors cannot "change the system." Doctors don't create it. The system is created by Washington bureaucrats, insurance executives, and, worse, pressure groups that demand special treatment for their constituencies. People want perfection, and they want it for free, and doctors get blamed when reality strikes.

    This actually re-kindle my purpose. I still remember my first day in med school. I was both scared and excited because of all these horrors I heard about med school. Funny thing is I got perfect scores on my first two Biochemistry class because of that very fear. I remember studying day and night with the fear of failing. But as I continued along, it was almost inevitable to not flunk an exam even though you feel like you gave it your all. I got depressed and questioned myself if med school was really for me. I know in my heart that I badly want to become a doctor, but my exam results didn't reflect it. The consultant would say to us "if I were a patient, I don't want to be treated by a doctor who always scores 40/100". There were days when I just break down and cry because I felt like a huge disappointment both to my dreams and to my parents who are actually supporting me. But you know what, I started thinking again of why I really want to become a doctor. That gave me enough courage to continue. Of course it's hard. It will always be hard so you gotta be harder than that to make a difference. That is why every time I see doctors and consultants, I can't help but think that these people have been through so much and look at them now in that white coat. We all have struggles and stories, but it is to make us tougher and be the best version of ourselves today. Someday I, too, can smile at a medical student and say "I've been there, trust me you can make it."

    Sometimes I feel like I won't be able to make it in medicine. Yesterday, I was at a used car dealership/auto shop talking to the man who owns the place. He told me he was a straight A student in high school, majored in pre-med (with an outstanding GPA), and did very well on his MCAT. This man did not get a call back from any medical school he applied to. He was able to get one interview and the doctor interviewing him said he should just be a used car salesman. He actually ended up doing that is the funny thing and is now running his successful business. Listening to him tell me that story scared me. I often have doubts if I'm fit for medicine, even though in my heart I know I am. This speech opened my eyes. Being a doctor is more than just being a good student and scoring well on tests. It's being the individual that is going to fight for reform and fix the broken healthcare system in the United States. When he said millennials are going to changet the system, that motivated me like no other. Thank you Dr. Dan!

      For the sake of all physicians, please do not consider PA or NP. Their organizations lobby hard in politics to ensure physicians lose their job by telling PAs and NPs that they can basically do the same job as a doctor. but they can't. They don't have the expertise nor the years of training. It's called job scope creep. One of my hospitals PAs recently just got fired because of malpractice, she thought she could do what a doctor did. Don't do it. In addition, your gpa and mcat don't mean anything, it just makes you competitive. It is your narrative and your motivations and your letter of recs and your extracurriculars that really get you into medical school.

      I’m going to take a different approach as an NP that went back to (osteopathic) medical school. That used car salesman had great stats but you don’t mention what kind of activities he had, what his personal statement was like, and how he interviewed with a medical school. Im thinking he crumbled if he didn’t have an answer to why he should be a doctor instead of a salesman...also you don’t mention how long ago he applied to school and mentalities may have changed since then. A lot of people told me that I shouldn’t do this and I still did, just applied for residencies as well. You can do it...just have a lot of self reflection on the why of things and don’t take no for an answer. I wish you the best!

    I talked to a physician a couple years ago how was heavily involved with his hospital administration and his state healthcare leaders. He spent so much time working on administration duties and comparatively less time with patients. He said something that impacted me. He stated to the effect of "the healthcare system is the way it is because we as doctors let it become this way." Doctors have 4 tenets that they strive to follow: autonomy, justice, beneficence, and non-maleficence. I believe that becoming involved in hospital administration or in state legislature is fulfilling beneficence. I do believe that it is partly my responsibility to help change the current healthcare system, in fact, I think that all physicians now have a shared responsibility to fix this system. Its not that we need 1000 doctors doing big acts to change this system. We need 100,000 doing small acts which will lead to big changes. The thought of "I don't need to act because another will" is going against beneficence. We all need to act in order to bring about change.

      Scrolling down on my screen and I run into your comment. Just wanted to say, do MD's really heal Diseases that people suffer? The answer is no, they only suppress your symptoms so you can go by your day so every week or so you can go back to your pharmaceutical drug store and provide the Goverment, Doctors, and Pharma Companies a steady cash flow of income. Pharamaceutical Medicine have more bad than good. Doctors can't even live pass 45 years of age before they commit suicide since more than 50% of them are addicted to pharmaceutical medicines. I'm sorry but to me the MD's are only good for Trauma Care, but are Apes on the Loose when it comes to trying to heal the simple illnesses like Heart Burn and High Blood Pressure. My idols like Dr. Peter Glidden and Dr. Joel Wallach who are NATUROPATHIC Doctors actually study the root cause of an illness and have had tremendous success and have inspired me to become an ND. And I'm just so confused why Medical Schools that prepare their students to become MD's tell them that they (ND's) are the Quacks when you guys are nothing but Reductionist.

    I’m a Med student from Colombia and we also have troubles with our health care system, it’s hard to see patients coming back to the hospital to tell our professors that the eps (which stands for entidad promotora de salud in Spanish / it’s something like a health insurance) didn’t allow them to take a test, to get some medication, etc. and sometimes this kind of situations make you think about the career; also the long study sessions, those days when you barely have time to sleep, all the stress, feeling frustrated because things aren’t happening the way you wanted make you ask yourself, why am I studying this? But thank you, Dr. because with this talk you reminded me one of the many reasons I decided to study this career and that’s to make people’s life better. Thank you so, so much.

    I believe the way a pharmacy runs is actually one of the keys. Meaning the pharmacy gets an instant feedback that the medication is covered and if it is not covered then the insurance company replies with a list of medications that is covered or if the provider decides to appeal it then a "prior authorization" is needed (that is another story all in itself). Anyways, I am planning to become a PA and now I am motivated to look into medical politics as well. Let's be the change!

    Really interesting to see this from the perspective of the British NHS. I love and share his enthusiasm for medicine. It is really sad to hear how much of his time is taken up with insurance forms and issues to do with affordability. However, it makes me hugely appreciative that we don't have this at all. No insurance companies and no concerns about whether people can afford their treatment as it is all free at the point of use. Don't get me wrong, we have our own issues. Explaining to people that they will have to wait for almost a year for their new hip is not easy and trying to find ways for your patients to get seen quicker can take a while. Nowhere is perfect but listening to him makes me glad to be where I am and very keen to avoid the creeping privatisation that is coming in the NHS.

    This man is 100% correct. Medicine used to be in the hands of the shaman, and paperwork was never a part of it. These are the exact reasons why I lean towards Law instead of neurosurgery; even the most complicated surgical technicians are bound by the beaurocracy of our healthcare system.

      Unfortunately the bureaucracy of medicine is due to the lawyers. I've asked multiple doctors (I'm in my third year of med school) what's wrong with medicine and at least 75% of them say "lawyers" in more or less words. The reason doctors have to fill out endless amounts of paper work is two pronged. One the hospital is a business. like it or not capitalism drives medical innovation. Without capitalism medical advancements would come to a screeching halt. Two patients and their lawyers are drooling to sue a hospital or doctor. Thus lawyers are part of the problem. Due to the threat of things going to a court room hospitals require doctors to fill out hours of paper work to defend against ravenous lawyers.

    I am in this situation. In a few years I start residency to become a maxillofacial surgeon, and my dad (doctor) is telling me not to do it. He's telling me medicine is dead, that the "good times" are long gone, that I have an unrealistic idea of what it is to be a doctor. I might be crazy, but it just might be a lunatic they're looking for.

    As a current medical student this topic of how the amount of people in the House and Senate who are doctors or scientists is "3%" and are the individuals making decisions on future medical policy really puts into perspective that different view points and expertise when making these policies is truly lacking. However, he speaks about how millennials are changing this trend with their culture and the perspectives we brings is such an exciting and inspiring prospect. As a student working to become a physician I want to be able to make that difference in a patient's life but also help show that policies need to be reviewed, changed and recrafted to the changing trends of medicine itself as it continually grows and with societies growth as well. Greatly appreciated Dr. Wozniczka's perspective as a millennial doctor and the excitement he brings to the profession for those who follow!
