Ethics Poll

Access to Medical Care in the U.S.

The Ethics Poll is a snapshot of the opinions of interested readers.

We will see comprehensive health care reform ensuring greater access to care/universal coverage taking place:
The greatest barrier for health care is:
Should the United States adopt a single-payer system that guarantees the same health care coverage to all citizens?
All medical students should be required to volunteer in a clinic at some point in their medical education?
