How Med Students Would Change Medicine There&#8217;s plenty of change needed.



Dave asks his co-hosts to discuss the things they would like to change about medicine and medical education, if (when) they could.A study in JAMA Pediatrics finds one reason students of color may drop out of med school: mistreatment. Dave fiddles around with AI text-to-image software. Can his co-hosts guess what the AI was trying to create?

NOT EVERYTHING NEEDS TO BE MEANINGFUL, Y’ALL. The Meaning of Purposelessness



On This Episode:



Join this week&#8217;s co-hosts M4 Madeline Cusimano, M3 Nathen Spitz, M3 Mason LaMarche, and M4 Ananya Munjal for the show!



* Facing a content-free episode, we discuss what medical students do when they&#8217;re avoiding purpose and meaning (ie., they want to just have fun). * We discuss a more nuanced view of work-life balance in medicine than is usually discussed (referenced: this Medscape article).* Madeline challenges the gang to play 5-second rule, Medicine Edition.* Bonus: As many tangents and asides as we can fit into an hour.

Stop Gatekeeping “Doctor.” Yes, you will (did) work hard to get your MD, but others have doctorates, too. Lighten up.



Noah (M2), Ariele (PA2), Nicole (M2), and Miranda (MSTP) discuss the impulse many MDs and MDs-to-be have to gatekeep the word &#8220;doctor&#8221; when advanced practice providers use it.PhDs, DNPs, AuDs and many more also have doctorates. Instead of worrying about who worked harder to get it, better perhaps to support each other and not worry about who deserves to call themselves a doctor.The American Board of Radiology did something crazy–they told programs their trainees will get a bunch of leave for birthing and non-birthing parents to care for their newborns. Noah and Ariele try the third hand experiment. Tik Tok science for the win? Or is it social pseudoscience?

Chirayu (M2), Maddie (M2), Tracy (M2) and new co-host Levi (MSTP) discuss the financial changes that doctors experienced after COVID, and whether a career in medicine makes as much financial sense as it once did.MIT scientists use locust cyborgs to find cancer cells.

We try to predict the future of medical training in light of the fall of Roe V. Wade



Dr. Abby Hardy Fairbanks, medical director of Iowa City&#8217;s Emma Goldman Clinic joins co-hosts MSTP students Madi and Riley, and M2s Mao and Tyler to help us understand how the recent SCOTUS decision striking down abortion as a federally protected right will affect their training.The changes may extend beyond OB-Gyn training to affect other specialties&#8230;as well as the trust that confidentiality brings to the doctor-patient relationship.Also, Dr. Hardy-Fairbanks talks about the advocacy roles physicians can take on, from state-house lobbying to voting to just being there for their patients.
