Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has signed into a law a bill that makes it legal for medical students who have not yet completed a year of residency to work as “assistant physicians” within the state, delivering primary care services with 10 percent of their work reviewed by a physician.
I disagree with this. Residency is invaluable in teaching people how to be doctors. Looking back to myself as a 4th year medical student and now as a resident, it’s amazing to see how much I have learned while under supervision. Practicing medicine without a residency is scary and likely dangerous.
