What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"A 85 yr old man comes in with a shot heart and shot lungs from drinking and smoking his whole life, he needs transplants to live. He has no health insurance and the procedure will cost upwards of 3 million. What do you do? And if you are allocating that much money to him, what about all the children in the community that could benefit from this money? Why do you think early patient exposure is a good thing? From my angle (a professor, not a clinician) you only have 2 years to learn the basic sciences and then the rest of your life for "patient exposure", so why take up the precious time you have of classroom studying with patient exposure?
