The Problem with Education

An education teaches you what to think, not how to think. For instance, if a doctor has studied one way to do something he will resist anything new even if it makes more sense. For example, it took ten years before doctors would accept the idea that stomach ulcers were caused by bacteria, 200 years to stop the practice of bleeding. When we consider that a great deal of their ongoing education is supplied by drug reps, I fear things will only get worse.
