ETSU Medical Students Confused by Obamacare
Students at ETSUís Quillen College of Medicine say they donít know that much about is in Obamacare, the nationís new healthcare law. ETSU medical students say they havenít heard any specifics of the law and donít know for sure how it will affect their future practice in medicine. According to the Dean of the College of Medicine, Philip Bagnell, the average Quillen student will graduate with $140,000 of student loan debt. According to a study from the Heritage Foundation, 78% of Americaís doctors say that the new regulations within Obamacare will have a negative affect on their salaries, and that could mean that these medical students will not make enough to pay back their loans. Students that were surveyed though say they aren't worried about not being able to pay the loans back but instead feel that the government should help pay back their debt. (hra)
