Consciousness remains a final frontier of neuroscience and psychiatry…and even immunology
M2s Trent Gilbert, Olivia Jenks, PA1 Faith Anton, and M4 Sarah Costello discuss what it might mean that doctors recently discovered a group of patients, previously diagnosed with schizophrenia, who might actually have other treatable immunological disorders that present as psych disorders.
We also discuss a new world record kidney stone, medical refugees legislation and healthcare discrimination right here in the US, and an eating disorders chatbot that dispenses terrible advice to people with eating disorders.
And, Dave subjects his co-hosts to a pop news pop quiz.

Long time SCP listener and CCOM M4 Austin Kazarian joins us on the show to talk about the personal finance course he proposed and helped create. Wait, isn’t there enough to learn in medicine? There is, but as long as med school debt is a problem, it’s important to learn how to deal with it, as well as many other financial issues that exist for new residents. Join him, MD/MBA student Gabe Conley, and M4s Joyce Wahba and Tim Maxwell for a discussion on how medical students can fix the inevitable gaps in their schools’ curricula, and why it’s important to look for a joint that’ll take your suggestions and let you lead with them (and see this article, and the Academic Medicine commentary discussed during the show). And if you want to bring Austin’s personal finance for physicians curriculum to your school, he’ll share his proposal with you to get started–drop him a DM @AustinKazarian.
Also, Dave gives the crew a news quiz. Were you paying attention these past few weeks?

Summer is here, and…everyone’s gone. Except for Lisa Wehr, who joined Dave Etler for a little freestyle convo in Flocks Community. We congratulated the recently graduated M4s, talk a little about the dreaded ‘dean’s letter,’ or MSPE, and some of our favorite stories from the past few weeks’ news:
