    Unemployed Doctors with Dr. Lou Francescutti (Extended interview)

    Dr.Lou Francescutti is the president-elect of the Canadian Medical Association and the president of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. We interviewed him in our recent show about unemployed doctors. He had a lot of provocative things to say about why some doctors can't find work, how the system is more about employment than making people well and how health care might look in the future. We thought many of you might want to hear the full interview he did with Brian.
