Sorry, but I think your background makes you a medical grunt. I'm not willing to go under the knife with an EMT at the helm.

I agree with your point on surgery, but I am pretty sure the ability to dispense care, including drugs, will be a lot more loose on a colony on Mars. Pretty much any qualified medical professional will almost be required to have the latitude to provide whatever health care they can provide in the kind of trauma situations we are likely to see.

I would rather be wrong...Than live in the shadows of your song...My mind is open wide...And now I'm ready to start...You're not sure...You open the door...And step out into the dark...Now I'm ready.
