In our ambition to assist the migration of healthcare into participatory healthcare we’ve encountered a -for me up until then- unknown effect. Young wanna-be doctors start with a great portion of passion with their Medical School, but somewhere on the road the system disrupts this passion.

Also in this (Dutch) article of a Dutch magazine for Doctors this matter is addressed firmly : http://www.artsenauto.nl/professioneel/co-assistent/Pages/Ikhebvaakgenoeggeda…
