"Institutions will try to preserve the problem to which they are the solution."

New York Medical School Widens Nontraditional Path For Admissions : NPR

This is exactly what I was talking about in my TED talk. Creative, outside-the-box thinkers are crucial in redefining healthcare and making it sustainable. We don’t need any more traditional-thinking doctors to maintain the status quo. This makes me think of the Shirky Principle:

“Institutions will try to preserve the problem to which they are the solution.”

We need less institutional types, and more creative doctors.
