B-school student researching Medical Tourism2008-12-27 13:22:56 by aterris
I'm part of a group of Harvard Business School students doing a research project on medical/dental tourism for a school project. As part of this project, we are looking to speak with:
- People who are currently thinking about traveling outside the United States to have an elective surgical/dental procedure (e.g. joint replacement, cardiac surgery, cosmetic procedures, dentistry).
We are looking to have a 15-20 minute phone interview in which we will ask basic questions regarding what type of surgery you are considering, why you are thinking of doing your surgery overseas, and how you are evaluating which country and hospital to have your procedure

Does a lot more than "have a position". They have no problem publishing papers on research, whether it supports their current position or not. In fact, Harvard Medical School, as an instution of higher learning, tries NOT to "have a position" on any topic.
However, as an institution that is required by their accrediting agencies to teach medical orthodoxy, they will inevitably, at least publish "current medical practice", which unfortunately is as much formed by who contributes the most money, as anything else...as well as pressure from the insurance industry.
Witness the "current medical practice" of prescribing drugs for depression, despite the volumes of evidence that aerobic exercise, weight loss, and proper amounts of sleep actually cure depression in 80% of all cases
