“I’m watching the line of young MDs file past me to be hooded, I’m feeling a range of emotions. Happy for them, of course, that they succeeded in a difficult and important endeavor. But also sad that many of them, especially those going into family medicine, have little idea what’s in store for them working in “the system.” It is nearly certain that they will quickly feel overwhelmed, frustrated and maybe even deceived, just like so many family docs working in “the system” today.” – Gayle Brekke
