Government is so deeply involved in the financing and delivery of health care that today’s medical students must be fluent in health policy as well as medicine. Yet medical schools often provide only a narrow perspective on health reform.
This page is a resource for medical students who wish to learn how a market system can make medical care better, more affordable, and more secure than any other system can. Here, Benjamin Rush Institute members can contact Cato scholars, download free copies of Cato Institute e-books, and immediately access a wide range of Cato research and analysis on health policy.
This ebook assembles the best of the Cato Institute’s work on Obamacare, and on how free markets are the only way to make health care better, more affordable, and more secure. These articles, written by over a dozen national experts, explain why repealing Obamacare is real health care reform.
