prevent doctors from acting on bad behavior. Although many people will argue that doctors make  mistakes like everyone else and should not be held fully accountable I disagree. There are many  professions out there where you go in knowing you hold someone’s life in your hands. I feel these  professionals go into the field taking the risk of being held accountable for their actions. Although it may  not be an attempt done on purpose physicians do not need to be careless and therefore make  unnecessary mistakes that may cost a person’s life. On the other hand there are some doctors who do  things on purpose and I feel these violators should have a broader and more severe punishment. In the  book I read “Like many Americans, I believed that a big problem in our country was frivolous lawsuits.  But now I know that the courts are often the only path to justice for families that are harmed by the  pharmaceutical industry and medical errors” (Pozgar, p. 528). This seems to be true and without it I  believe we would have more issues and controversies than we do now.  Pozgar, G.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
