The Annals of Internal Medicine published an editorial from a medical educator admitting and highlighting the fact that there are objectionable people in medicine, and showing how the hierarchical nature of medicine leads otherwise well-meaning students to play along with racism, sexism, and harassment.   One can argue that no-one should ever play along, but in order to not be taken off guard by those who have control over your life, you must have a plan for bad behavior.  Corbin Weaver and newbies Tony Rosenberg, Nicole Westergaard, and Emily White toss around some ideas.

Also, Dave and Nicole plan a CCOM motorcycle gang, despite the occasional judgy medical students (and Nicole’s EMT background).  Researchers grow a small brain from stem cells that includes 99% of the cell-types present in the human brain.  Female viagra is approved by the FDA, after having twice been rejected.  A blood test for suicidal thoughts might be BS, but we talk about it anyway.
