Fewer US med students choosing primary care

Only 2 percent of graduating medical students say they plan to work in primary care internal medicine, raising worries about a looming shortage of the first-stop doctors who used to be the backbone of the American medical system.

Just 2 percent of nearly 1,200 fourth-year students surveyed planned to work in primary care internal medicine, according to results published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. In a similar survey in 1990, the figure was 9 percent.

Family medicine had the lowest average salary last year, $186,000, and the lowest share of residency slots filled by U.S. students, 42 percent. Orthopedic surgery paid $436,000, and 94 percent of residency slots were filled by U.S students.

"Primary care is holding steady but only because of international medical school graduates,"
as American students lose interest, teaching hospitals will probably become less interested in offering primary care programs

Individualism Vs Collectivism


This is a nice article about the "Individual values" of the Western society and "collective values" of eastern society.
Western societies are more rich and prosperous and emphasize more on "individual values and privacy and rights" on the other hand Eastern societies emphasize more on group effort.

one of the most striking is the divide between the societies with an individualist mentality and the ones with a collectivist mentality.


Americans are more likely to see categories. Asians are more likely to see relationships.



You can create a global continuum with the most individualistic societies — like the United States or Britain — on one end, and the most collectivist societies — like China or Japan — on the other.



The individualistic countries tend to put rights and privacy first


Either way, individualistic societies have tended to do better economically.


But what happens if collectivist societies snap out of their economic stagnation?


A new sort of global conversation develops.



The rise of China isn’t only an economic event. It’s a cultural one. The ideal of a harmonious collective may turn out to be as attractive as the ideal of the American Dream.




It’s certainly a useful ideology for aspiring autocrats.

In Pictures: Inside The World's First Billion-Dollar Home

Nine elevators dot the lobby floor: Two are designated for parking areas, three for guest quarters, two for the Ambani family residences and two for service. The lobby opens to numerous lounges, reception areas and powder rooms. Dual stairways lead from the lobby floor down to the ballroom, which is designed in an open layout with a two-story roof.

The most striking features of the Antilla ballroom are the crystal chandeliers that will take up approximately 80% of the ceiling. The silver stairways lead to a central landing, behind which two retractable doors can open to display works of art. There is also a stage for entertainment or speeches, with a projection screen behind it. A kitchen, about the same size as the ballroom itself, can service hundreds of guests.

procedure known as PAOO, short for Periodontally Accelerated Osteogenic Orthodontics.

With this technique, a periodontist or oral surgeon uses special instruments to score the bone that holds the teeth in place and then applies bone graft material over the grooves. The procedure is done under local anesthetic in the dental office.
Accelerated orthodontics is gaining popularity as a way for patients, particularly adults with mature bones, to speed up the time it takes to straighten misaligned bites and fix crowded teeth.
The cost for accelerated orthodontics typically ranges from $10,000 to $15,000, depending on the course of treatment.

However, he added, the benefits were impressive: In eight months, Chang’s overbite and crowded teeth were a thing of the past.
“It would have taken about two years to do this with traditional orthodontics,” Chang said.
