You can learn a lot about the future of Australian medicine by visiting the United States. Although I am home from my New York sabbatical, a short return trip allowed me to hear President Obama outline his plans for US health care reform to the American Medical Association. He noted that the American health care system is unfair, unaffordable and headed for bankruptcy. Paraphrasing loosely, it has features that are downright “un-American”.
