That is a nice thought - but, what happens when you have invested 300K into medical education and then decide..."maybe this isn't what I want to do." Then, unless you come from wealth or have no medical debt, the amount of debt you have aquired obligates you to a full-time profession you "thought" you could leave at any time. And, if you have read the boards on here with a medical degree there are not many career options that offer 6-figure salaries that will pay off that debt - just to change specialities it is A LOT of work. I mean really, how does one stay at home and raise her kids with 200-300K of debt? Just a thought.
