    that is pretty good news indeed... I would hope that the new 889 spots would offset the amount of expansion that has occured recently due to new DO schools opening up and existing MD schools expanding their classes.

    ^ I would assume that means the program will have completed opening up 889 spots BY 2015.... which means the increases will occur gradually from now up until 2015.

    Oh VMD how I love you! To take news of new residency spots and twist it into something negative. Way to be a debbie downer.

    Tennisball80 has a good pt.

    Residents are slave labor, well, at least cheap labor. They're in GME. Some countries' "residencies" pay almost nothing, or even ask residents to pay some "tuition." Glad the USA isn't as cheap. In US, they make ~$40,000 before taxes. After a year's taxes, that # could be $30,000/yr. Paid mostly by Medicare. Hospitals should stand to gain something financially, besides the prestige associated w/ "major teaching hospital."
