Interesting story about one of the most entitled of medical specialties -- Radiology.

Apparently more and more hospitals are sending their x-rays to India for reading, meaning the guarantee of a $400,000/year job on completion of Residency in ending.

One hospital, McLaren Macomb, in suburban Detroit, instead offered several residents slots in its “unfunded program,” in which most radiology residents essentially pay for their own positions through donations, typically from a spouse or parents: $65,000 a year to cover a $42,000 salary and $2,000 for expenses.
