Yeah. That's really America in general at this point. It's a real sad situation for everybody involved, though from my point of view I think it's just sick people in general at the most disadvantage. Hopefully things change for the better over time... with a series of miracles. You can do your best I suppose. Just be a good human being. I think the real change has to come from the federal level. Stuff has to change for the overall system to change. But it's probably never going to happen in any significant way. Everything considered.

I myself want to become an economist so I can work for the government then earn enough money to found my own businesses. I hope to most contribute to the cause of human health through investment and R&D into stuff like stem cell research biotech etc. But it's a long winding path. I'll be lucky just to finish my studies in econ.

Don't even go there. I spent a good number of years before I even started this processing researching and taking in information learned a bit about the woes of American healthcare, in this country. First of all, here in America it's 2x PLUS more expensive for nearly everything. And GROSS overcharges for the SIMPLEST of shit. It's highway robbery, but it's a highly profitable business with NO alternates. America also has the lowest percentage of pay coming from actual results or success in treatment, meaning doctors and the like get PAID regardless. Plus there's big money in sponsorship and pharmaceuticals. Drug companies give hopsitals free shit and highly encourage docs to prescribe their shitty drugs (Gabapentin is a nice fucking example FUCK!) The format and organization is horrible. Our rankings for lots of healthcare stuff is actually pretty fucking low. According to WHO America ranks a whopping 38th place for healthcare overall.

Now all of this kinda talk is fine and dandy, people will call you crazy for saying stuff like this, but I've actually EXPERIENCED it. And it fucking SUCKS. So if you really want to help people and make a difference, this probably isn't the industry to do so.

Unless you work in a specific and helpful field (surgeon, anesthetics, scans, etc) it's just a whole lot of talk, bullshit, and blockbuster drug pushing. If you still want to do so, then I hope that you come armed with this information and actually try to be a decent healthcare provider. Learn about the human body, gain experience in healthcare OUTSIDE of what they teach you. Maybe learn about alternative medicine and human health yourself.

That being said if you want to make money, do it. A clean conscious and it's a cakewalk.
As a patient though I gotta tell you it's absolute hell. I think another big issues is like you mentioned the lack of science.

100-200 years plus and diagnostics might actually be worth a damn. Until then, people like me are fucked, and "professionals" aren't much help to anybody but themselves. Outside of specific acute common illness and conditions. Even then, the whole situation is just terrible.

I feel you. I have a lot of friends myself that are in somewhat the same boat as you, going through the process with little to no positive response and lots of negative (in the form of outbound money).

My mother being a nurse and myself working as a tech in a PT clinic through high school, I kinda hear a lot of the same stuff from both sides of the line. The entire system is pretty bullshit, and a lot of people (doctors, therapists, and patients all) think it needs to change, but so few are willing to work to change the system because of who runs it (see: not really anyone medically trained).

So the goal is to go in and try to make a difference, at least for the people whose lives I can touch in a (hopefully) positive manner. Maybe we can shoot a little higher once we're there.

Good luck, interwebs friend. I hope for all of our sakes that the system improves for the patient end of things.

Something to make you angrier:
