When I was in the biology program at BYU-H, there were quite a few students there from western European countries who planned to go on to med school after they finished their biology degree. None of them had any plans of returning to their native countries to practice medicine because, as one good-natured redhead from England put it, "I'm not putting in the time, effort and expense of going to medical school so that I can go home to be over-worked, poorly paid and constantly doing paperwork." If he stayed on track, he should be finishing up his training about now.

I'm wondering how he feels about his adopted country this morning.

I sure would love to know! My little brother wants/wanted to go to med school but not if health care is reformed. Haven't talked to him yet, but we'll see how he's feeling about med school now.
