-----------------------------------------------------------
What is a career as a physician really like?
How serious a problem is doctor burnout?
What new responsibilities will physicians face in the changing field  of medicine?

 Find out the answers - what happens after you get into medical school, what paths are open to an MD, and what a career as a physician is really like – by reading The Next Generation at www.NextGenMD.org.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Next Generation is a periodic, online publication designed to present interesting and relevant information to premedical students, medical students and general interest readers. Premedical students can easily find information on how to get into medical school, but there is a shortage of accessible information answering the question "Why should I become a physician?" The Next Generation seeks to meet this need and encourage a new generation of doctors and health-conscious citizens to develop broader perspectives on the field of medicine.
