Literature  - 
Endorphin Joy Ride
Let us speak of love,
of dear enthralled enchantment.
Ecstatic rush that drugs wish they could bring.
Mood’s choral turns to Spring.
That special lethargy that poets faux affect,
reflective as a silver pool.
We like the love that lets us play the fool,
exudes good humor, respite from
sober shame of longing heart.
That flame, that spark that arts
wish power to capture,
that rapture.
Tongues entwined in love, we speak
outside of language,
breaths of bliss.

My Painting In Honor Of Earth Day:  Dawn Twilight - The Sun, The Moon, The Stars       This triptych painting is based on my memories of traveling in the High Sierra Mountains, of looking up to see the sky full of stars.  As today is Earth Day, it seems an especially appropriate time to post it.  Medium: Oil on canvas, W 108 X H 24 inches.  This painting and my other landscapes are at my website, hope you check it out.

Changing the Formula for Doctors
This post adds backstory that explains why we train doctors the way we do and possible ideas about changing that process.

Over the past century, there have been additions to, but few subtractions from, the training process. Residency and fellowship programs became longer and longer ... and longer. The path to some specialties is now almost comically arduous. Many hand surgeons, for example, complete five years in general surgery, followed by three years in plastic surgery, followed by another year of specialized hand surgery training. To be a competitive candidate for a hand surgery fellowship, it’s also strongly recommended to spend two additional years on research at some point during the process.

The current system has costs beyond making doctors expensive and rare. The long process doesn’t just weed out the incompetent and the lazy from the potential pool of physicians—it deters students who can’t pay for so many years of education or who need to make money quickly to support their families. That introduces a significant class bias into the physician population, depriving a large proportion of the population of doctors who understand their background, values, and challenges.

One solution is to simply lop off a few years from the process. Writing in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2012, bioethicist Ezekiel Emanuel (one of those Emanuels) and economist Victor Fuchs recommended shortening each stage by about 30 percent. Four years of premedical training shouldn’t be a requirement for those who don’t want it or can’t afford it, they argued. The fourth year of medical school is largely a breeze, and a few progressive medical schools are now offering three-year programs to reflect that reality.

We need more doctors. On a global scale, the shortage is staggering: The World Health Organization says we need 15 percent more doctors. In the United States, the American Association of Medical Colleges estimates the current deficit at almost 60,000 and forecasts a worrisome 130,600-doctor shortfall by 2025. There’s one...
