Rapid Policy Changes can Alienate our most Talented Doctors.

Dr. George has been studying the changes of healthcare from the outside looking in, today she talks to Dr. John Hunt who worked inside academic medicine.  A rapid change happened to healthcare seven or eight years ago, where doctors worked as individuals and had lots of freedom to a top down military type structure that has stifled many doctors to find new ways to treat patients. The change had been so alienating, it caused Dr. Hunt to leave academic medicine.
