Things could even be cheaper if the government subsidized med students the way it subsidizes law students.

How about vouchers for med students of say $50,000 per year? Then they wouldn't have so much debt when they finished. The increased number (supply) of health care providers would reduce costs and increase competition in the market place. Would be worth every cent for the vouchers in the long run...

"The Medicare program makes explicit payments to teaching hospitals for a portion of these added costs through direct graduate medical education (DGME) payments. "
