No Arthur, only in your dreams. That simply is not true. You are making stuff up again. Canada, a medical school is a faculty or school of a university that offers a three- or four-year Doctor of Medicine (M.D. or M.D.C.M.) degree. Generally, medical students begin their studies after receiving a bachelor's degree - Wikipedia. Most medical schools outside The United States are 5 or six year programs. Nurse practioners and physicians assistants have at least as much training. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medical_school#Canada You are throwing up chaff again Arthur. As I said and per my references getting an MD in most other industrial countries is a six year process - the same educational requirement for nurse practioners and physicians assistants. The unpleasant bottom line for you here, is that we in the US have nurse practioners and physicians assistants acting as physicians (performing the same tasks as physicians) and billing as physicans but cannot operate as independent agents and compete with physicians.
