Fishermen, tourists and firefighters joined forces and managed to rescue a Bryde’s Whale that was stranded on rocks on a beach in Arraial do Cabo, north of Rio de Janeiro.

How or why do you think it will do that?

Will they make an explicit effort to enroll more students with low incomes? Will they recruit in poorer communities, where fewer applicants are likely? Will they look at more international applicants?

Fingers crossed. Please let us know what you find out while keeping an eye on that.

Honestly, I will be far more interested in how it affects the choices after graduation. A large part of the primary care shortage is due to the huge debt these kids are carrying after med school, so the lower paying fields, like my own, are a really hard sell. The ripples will be interesting. No financial barrier to get in, no financial barrier to consider in choosing residency. Yeah, could be very interesting.
