Medical School Hot Takes, Part 2


More possibly terrible ideas about how the world should work

  • Dave and Riley enjoyed the first hot takes episode so much, they decided to do a follow up of those they didn’t get to.
  • Aline, Alec, and Miranda join in, with their takes: no medical students who haven’t failed, Tik Tok filters are doing to damage to children’s brains, students lie about their ability to hear heart murmurs, and more.
  • Listener and US Marine Tanner writes in to ask about his undergraduate education plan as his military service draws to a close, but Dave has concerns about how admissions committees will view undergrad education at a for-profit institution.
