Exactly. You have to be highly motivated to accomplish that. And when you take away the money factor then what will push the people to want to be doctors. Eventually, they will have to dumb down
the program and lower the standards. Making it cheaper and easier to be a doctor will be the only way to entice people to want to do it.
Then the rich here can travel to another country for a good doctor the way that rich Canadians now travel here for the best care.
