    I have wondered for a while now if medical schools will shift their teaching to an emphasis on assessment skills and specialty, and let computers do the diagnosis and care plan, though not immediately applicable or feasible in some areas, some are malleable to this idea. The day of computer doc is coming simply because of the massive amounts of information that must be learned, and the economic forces at play. Wild huh?
