A recent survey of roughly 4,000 medical students found that about 1,400, or 35 percent, abused alcohol, according to the Mayo Clinic, which conducted the study. That is compared to 16 percent of of peers not in medical school. Looks to me that they are just getting prepared to deal with the bureaucratic drag heading their way, and there is no better way to ease the pain of listening to an administrator talk or working on electronic records late into the night than by doing it while hammered drunk. I am kidding. Or am I? Things were much different in 1989 as the rate of alcohol abuse was no different then their peers then. What happened? I think we know.
