"Let's Talk": Mediocrity in Medicine

This program is the second in the SNI DIgital® "Let's Talk" series developed for the YNSS by Mohammad Ashraf and Hassan Ismael of the Glasgow University School of Medicine for the purpose of addressing controversial medically related issues of concern to the YNSS generation.  The topics are developed by the YNSS and Glasgow Neuro for all of their colleagues worldwide. Mediocrity in Medicine is a major concern for these young people as they strive to reach their life's goals seeing their desire for excellence compromised by socialistic systems, and people who are not incentivized to be their best. In addition, the government programs  reflecting this goal of equity for all, they feel has blunted their incentives to be the best that they can be. Why be excellent when mediocrity is rewarded?   The audience and the intergenerational panel discuss the reasons for this mediocrity and the personal actions one can take to achieve their life's goals.  This is a first rate open discussion of a major effect of Socialism on people and the achievement of excellence in Medicine with implications for the future and the choices one makes personally to solve this issue.
