Not a bad idea.: Healthcare and the way healthcare is provided is dramatically changing in these last few years. 'Obamacare', insurance payments, doctors not choosing to build a solo practice are among these. You're at a time where you can decide as you go what you wish to pursue as healthcare will not remain as you know it today and will continue dynamically changing. Technology/ Economy are related.
