What It Takes to Make a Doctor 


 <http://www.aaemrsa.org/> AAEM/RSA

 

 

With many states passing legislation allowing the increased scope of
practice of midlevel providers, including nurse practitioners (NPs), the RSA
believes it's important to show the level of training undergone by midlevels
versus physicians. 

As you can see by the infographic below, medical students have 10x the
clinical training and nearly 5x the school unit requirements that an NP
completes. The difference? We don't allow med students to practice
independently for patient safety.

That's because we believe that patients deserve the best care possible,
provided by a physician-led care team with the education and training
necessary to ensure patient safety.
