Very interesting article in the Times today: Doctors in Cuba Start Over in the U.S.

One thing that struck me was the way certain aspects of American medical training are addressed in this article. By coincidence, earlier today I was talking with another resident about how almost every article we see in the general press about medical training tends to use the same formulas and cliches.

"...most hospitals seek young doctors who can work long hours for little pay. A 40-year-old doctor is often deemed too old to be accepted in a residency program." Oddly refreshing -- and, in some ways, more accurate -- to see the issues examined from a different angle.
