For those who promote “Let’s forget organized medicine and just do our own thing,” what will you do about those who espouse the following policies?

Comment:  Continuing medical education should be focused on physicians (MDs/DOs). Courses teaching complex diagnostic, therapeutic or surgical procedures should be open only to those practitioners who have the appropriate medical education background and preparation.

You're not good enough because you're not smart enough.  You're not smart enough because we're not going to teach you or allow you to learn.  Who is in control of education and learning?  Organized medicine sure wants to be.  

ExcerptAMA will encourage the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education, the American Academy of Family Physicians, and other groups that accredit providers of continuing medical education to adopt the principle that continuing medical education should be focused on physicians (MDs/DOs). Courses teaching complex diagnostic, therapeutic or surgical procedures should be open only to those practitioners and/or sponsored members of the practitioner’s care team who have the appropriate medical education background and preparation. – Medical Education – Attendance of Non-Physicians at Courses Teaching Complex Diagnostic, Therapeutic or Surgical Procedures, American Medical Association Policy D-300.998
