Meet David. Smart. Jobless. And $586,000 in debt. David was on the fast track to becoming a medical doctor, until he lost his residency. But David has a plan. If he can complete 1,920 hours of supervised clinical therapy, he can finally become “a real doctor.” All he needs is a supervisor. And patients he's met on Craigslist willing to come to his office…in his parents' garage.
