I said thousands of years of history developed a better society, namely our western society. But don't let what I actually said get in your way. Polygamy might be older, or no official union at all is older, just drag the woman into the cave ... primitive tribes let the chief have all the women, and the "gay culture" may be returning us to those looser norms, but not for the better.

Bill aims to create more residency slots at teaching hospitals

Illinois Congressman Aaron Schock has introduced legislation aimed at helping more med students become doctors.

Schock announced his sponsorship of the bill on what is known as match day by students studying to become doctors.

That's the day the med school students find out where they will be going for their residency training.

Schock said what is an exciting day for most medical students - is an enormously disappointing day for others because of the growing shortage of slots at teaching hospitals across the U S.

“Currently the estimation is that there are tens of thousands of shortages of GME slots. Part of this is because of the number of teaching slots, training slots has not been increased since 1997.”

That - coupled with increased demand in healthcare - led Schock to introduce his bill that will create 15 thousand more slots for medical residents.

Schock says the bill will help bring more doctors to rural hospitals by helping more students become primary care physicians...

“It focuses half of that 15,000 on primary care physicians, so in other words, people who go to medical school for the purposes of primary care.”

Schock introduced similar legislation last year but it saw no action during an election year.
