New York Presbyterian and Columbia decide to get out of family medicine, so they abruptly closed their FM residency program…three months after a new class of residents began working there.

Meanwhile, Dave teaches Marc Toral, Tae Kim, and Kaci McCleary about what physicians used to do to memorialize their patients: use their skin to bind books about their conditions. So that’s nice. And the FDA is considering the first prescription video game. And Pharma Bro Martin Shkreli’s amazingly awful business plan to take an inexpensive generic drug and charge a boatload of money for it blows up in his face when another company undercuts his price by $749 per tablet.
