Q: What are some of the things you are concerned about?
A: I am worried about healthcare reform and its impact on the pipeline for new graduates in all specialties. Those of us already in the business talk about the economic impact, grumble about lifestyles and dissatisfaction at work. Will that affect whether people choose the healthcare field as a profession? It may be that medicine in general, and rheumatology in particular, is not viewed as a job with a future.
