She's got this, move along, boys.
She’s got this, boys, move along.

Happy Thanksgiving! Have a heaping slice of Greg Woods, Lisa Wehr, Cole Cheney, and Corbin Weaver who cover the attention Mattel’s Barbie is getting for being a shockingly bad computer engineer, and whether and how this sort of bias against the competence of women appears in medical education.

Corbin Weaver, Kaci McCleary, Lisa Wehr, Greg Woods, Ben Quarshie and Cole Cheney were all available for podcasting this week, so I match them with their celebrity look-alikes. Also, we announce an internship for Iowa pre-meds, something we’re very excited about. We talk about Brittany Maynard’s decision to move to Oregon so that she could be in a position to end her suffering from glioblastoma by taking advantage of Oregon’s Death with Dignity law.

COFFEEEEEE!

This week an overly caffeinated Dave is joined by new podcaster Jordan Harbaugh-Williams, who, along with Cole Cheney, Corbin Weaver, and Aline Sandouk discuss the Midwesterner habit of being polite; the Deeded Body Ceremony; and Cole outs Corbin’s possible run for office in medical school government.  That’s not confirmed, by the way–her spokespeople say she’s currently exploring her options and hasn’t ruled out a campaign.  Also, a drive through pain medicine clinic in Texas is shut down, for some reason.  Tulane opens a teaching kitchen for medical students.  A review of lithopedion cases.  And a Chinese man gets a 3D printed skull implant operation.

Orientation Week!

Compulsory #1 (SUCCESS!), by Jason Epping (Flickr)

This week, first-year medical student Corbin Weaver joins the team, and gives Keenan Laraway the low-down on her orientation week experiences.  We discuss the alleged shady medical theories of Dr. Henry Heimlich (of the eponymous maneuver), a 6-year-old’s MAGEC spine correction treatment, Walmart’s desire to be your primary care doc’s office, and a device that might just revolutionize the transportation of (and therefore the whole process of transplanting) donor organs.
