We already heavily regulate medical schools -- so if students could go to medical schools directly from High School (or after a year or two of college) -- provided they had the requisite knowledge that would mean two separate good things for consumers. First, a medical school education would be less expensive (and students would on average borrow less) -- thus, there would be less of a need to charge a high rate for services. Second, doctors would have 2/3/4 years of earning power (assuming retirement at a same age would be constant). Some med schools permit this now -- but if all did costs would fall.
