What kind of doctor?

It is a question often asked casually in small-talk with students who have stated they wish to become a doctor. But perhaps it is now a question we all should be asking in a context of considerably more gravity.

“Let them discover the kind of doctors that their system will now produce. Let them discover in their operating rooms and hospital wards, that it is not safe to place their lives in the hands of a man who’s life they have throttled. It is not safe if he is the sort of man who resents it – and still less safe, if he is the sort who doesn’t.”

– Dr. Hendricks – Atlas Shrugged 1957
