Lack of curriculum The “Hidden” curriculum Lack of assessment
Will fewer Indonesian students be attracted to medicine as a career? Will quality of medical students be lower? Will most physicians work as employees for private care corporations on a salary basis? Will routine procedures that physicians perform be taken over by nurse practitioners and allied health care workers?
How will these changes effect doctor- patient relations? Will there be increased competition for patients by health care organizations and groups of physicians? Will increased corporate control and consolidation of health care reduce the autonomy and influence of community boards and local groups of physicians?
