Future-Med for Social Media


The saving grace for health care is the constant infusion of new blood into our stressed out system.

A significant number of physicians suffer ‘burnout’, cynicism and frustration with the ever changing environment of health care finance..  Over a forty year career the changes are at first imperceptible, then immense when looking overall at the system.

the medical system is immensely different from when I was a young doctor. Some of it very good, some…leaving much to be desired.

This post is about an incoming generation of pre-med students, designed to increase access to underserved minority populations:

The University of California, in Riverside California will matriculate it’s first medical school class in August  2013. Prior to this UCR Medical School was a combined program with UCLA.

CSUSB (California State University San Bernadino is hosting it’s first annual pre-med conference for students, parents and other health professionals. sponsored by IEHP, MAPPS, (Medical and Pre-health Student Society)  KAPLAN, and the PRINCETON REVIEW


Join us as we prepare the California State University, San Bernardino campus to host its first Pre-Medical & Pre-Health Conference!! This conference is for all students, advisors, and parents interested in learning about the healthcare professions and who care about making a difference in their communities! The Pre-Medical & Pre-Health Conference, organized by the Medical and Pre-Health Student Society (MAPSS), targets underrepresented students from all colleges and universities interested in pursuing a career in health care. “Touch the Lives of Your Community with Your Passion for Medicine” Conference Information

The fresh faces of young aspiring physicians demonstrates to me our system will do better with a new generation, who will function in a new system. It’s time for we senior physicians to make way and encourage them…it belongs to them, now

None of them will need to be trained in social media…..they invented it.
