Hot Takes: Med School Edition (Part 1?) (Recess Rehash)


[It’s winter break for us here at the University of Iowa, so we’re taking a break. Our next new episode will be out January 18, 2024. In the meantime, enjoy this rerun!]

These might be very bad ideas…but we’ll talk about them anyway.

  • Riley leads a discussion with Jeff, Levi, and Katie of unpopular opinions about medicine and medical education.
  • Anki sucks! Gap years should be mandatory! All clerkships should be optional! 8th graders should review scientific papers!
  • We don’t know about you, listeners, but the co-hosts enjoyed this discussion so much you can look for a part 2 in December!
