Listener Oscar called in to find out what should he do about his case of nerves now that he’s been accepted to medical school, and Lisa Wehr, Aline Sandouk, Marc Toral, and Dylan Todd have plenty of calming words for him. They also discuss the statistics of 2016’s Match, why some people don’t match (do whatever it takes, ethically, to get good exam scores, people), and what people who don’t end up matching can do with their MD. Some schools have even begun offering built-in backup plans for those folks.
Also, we play a rousing game of One-Word Medicine, in which a patient (Dylan/Cory) arrives at the emergency room with an embarrassing problem. Can the good doctor (Aline/Marc) help?
