It could be worse. When licensing of doctors was abolished in the US in 
the mid-1800's it _was_ worse:


And I would contend that the current HMO led fiasco's are an example of a 
return to the practice of medicine by the unlicensed: HMO's are not 
required to have licensed doctors make their treatment 'allowed/not 
allowed' decisions nor are they legally liable for bad decisions beyond 
the cost of the denied treatment. Not even if you die because of it.
