The Medical Post featured a terrific article on Medical Misconceptions

The April 21st issue of The Medical Post featured a terrific article on Medical Misconceptions, and some interesting facts. For instance:

 Truth:

1. The average doctor retires at age 71 (probably because we have no pension, sick days, vacation days, or drug plan)

2. The average number of hours of training to become a doctor is over 40,000

3. The average age a doctor actually starts working after residency is 31.

4. A leading cause of physician burnout is uncompensated paperwork of 5-10 hours per week on average.

 

Myths/False:

1. Doctors are paid for writing prescriptions. This is blatantly false and always has been.

2. Doctors get all sorts of free goodies from drug companies ; in fact, doctors no longer are allowed to even get a pen with a drug name on it.
