How Climate Change will Change Medicine


Physicians of the (all-too-near) future will face new challenges

  • Iowa College of Public Health Professor Peter Thorne visits with M4s Nathen and Zack, M3 Rick, and M2 Chirayu to look at what climate change means for doctors and patients in the future.
  • As seas rise and weather events become more and more severe, there will be changes to the kinds of conditions and people that physicians will treat.
  • Garrison writes in to ask us about a med school that just wants 90 credits and an MCAT–is it too good to be true?
