Ricardo Quarrie, surgeon falsely accused of wrongdoing, tries to recover his name - CNN
> "Employers told me I was very qualified for positions, but patients Google their doctors, and they didn't feel like they could refer patients to me," said the cardiothoracic surgeon, who trained at Yale, the Cleveland Clinic and Ohio State.
"It's been a nightmare," added Quarrie, the father of two young children. "The spread of that information -- or misinformation -- is so rapid, and people really do believe what they read."

Surprise Gift: Free Tuition for All N.Y.U. Medical Students
"A plan will cover the $55,000 annual tuition for every current and future New York University School of Medicine student, regardless of financial need."
"... Columbia announced a $250 million gift from Dr. P. Roy Vagelos, an alumnus who is a former chairman of Merck & Co., and his wife, Diana, that would offer students with the greatest financial need full-tuition scholarships, and other students grants, rather than loans. ...
To date, only a handful of institutions have tried to make medical education tuition-free, according to Julie Fresne, senior director of student financial services of the Association of American Medical Colleges, a nonprofit organization that represents medical schools.
At UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine, a $100 million fund announced several years ago pays for the entire cost of medical school for all four years, including tuition, fees, books and living expenses for roughly 20 percent of its students. But that program is based on merit, not need.
Meanwhile, a small medical school affiliated with Case Western Reserve University at the Cleveland Clinic covers the tuition and fees for its five-year program focusing on research.
Most of the roughly 20,000 students per year enrolled in American medical schools take out sizable federal loans to support their studies. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, in 2017, the median debt for graduating medical students was $192,000."

Did A Melatonin Patent Inspire Current Dose Confusion? | Slate Star Codex
MIT patented the proper dosage of a drug; the FDA decided to (not) regulate it as a supplement; and that is why all the stores carry an incorrect dose (even now that the patent has expired).
