I open the glossy cover of my alma mater's alumni magazine. Images of new frontiers in medicine abound—state-of-the-art research buildings and the latest in high-tech hospital innovations. Nestled among the articles on cutting edge medicine is a feel-good story about medical students. The article profiles volunteer medical students and their uninsured patients with chronic health conditions. At one site, they are touted as providing “the only medical care.” Indeed.
I think back to my medical student days and cringe.
