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:  Sure organized medicine supports payment models for non-physician practitioners, as long as it doesn't interfere with medical residents.

ExcerptAMA will only support payment models for non-physician practitioners that do not interfere with graduate medical training.  Procedural training is a critical portion of resident education and the augmentation of patient care by non-physician practitioners should not interfere with a resident’s ability to achieve competence in the performance of required procedures.
