And mdrnprometheus is really wondering if, on a money and time basis, it might not cost less to just hire someone to go after Dr. Peter Scoles' knees with a tire iron.

At this point, I think our best hope actually lies with something called the Initiative to Transform Medical Education. It's the beginnings of the "Flexner 2.0" process we've all heard about for years. If we can move meded away from being so memorization-based, it'll force a re-examination of the entire USMLE process, and then, then perhaps the tests can once again actually test ability to care for patients.
