    China is growing, we are getting better in many aspects, but we still need big progress on some aspects. The government has improved a lot in recent years on medical treatment, as well as on elderly people. However, the thing happend recently in Beijing Medical University really really a pity, should we care more on it?

    And in America if Obama gets his way..our medical system as we know it will go to hell. Most Americans don't want socialized medicine like Europe or Canada. I hope what ever happened in BJ wasn't too bad.

    it was a medical accident, one professor from Beijing medical university got sick and she received medical treatment there, however, the doctor worked on her is a student on the university, not graduated yet. and the doctor is not qualified for a doctor yet !!!! we feel quite sorry for that, what the national monitoring bureau do? should protect people, right?

    Most Americans do want universal health care, Steven. (A recent poll conducted by SurveyUSA, for example, showed that 77% of Americans found it "extremely important" for the US Government to offer public health care plans).

    The medical system is the States has already gone to hell. The current system values lucre over public benefit; it's wasteful and ineffective and while we spend a larger portion of our GDP than any other country on health care, the quality of care and access is ranked 37th on a global level.

    Furthermore, about 60% of the American health care system is already financed by federal and state taxes.

    Despite the above facts, a small (but very vocal) minority of the American population continues to think that President Obama is a socialist, is infringing on freedom and will destroy the country.

    Like you, Steven. You must be a teabagger.

    It's actually a common occurence in China--the reason why this piece of information is somehow getting attention is that the patient happened to be a professor who not only had the strong awareness of how bad the education quality of a Chinese university can be--hence, the danger of being "taken care of" by a student doctor, but also was capable of "articulating" her/his complaint in public...if anyone, in my opion, who has some idea of what the social situation in China is like, he should not make fuss about such phenomenon...the advancement and maturity of a social system are not soley based on how much the governmen can "earn", but on multiple aspects concerning the well-being of the people, and these cannot be done in short time period...So, in short, good luck, my Chinese compatriots...
