Doctors aren't magically smarter than developers.
You can hire a developer off the street who just happened to be the CEO's nephew. You can't do that with doctors.
There's a growing shortage of developers. What would that look like with more barriers to entry?

Risk management is very real with people's very lives. The price going up is expected because of the filtering needed, but it shouldn't go up as fast as it does in America.

It also has an effects on quality of instruction. Limiting the number of students tends to increase the quality of instruction, something I believe is extremely important in medicine.
I'm not saying that there are abuses. But you made the claim that the only effect it has is to raise prices, and that is completely wrong.
