Putting on your #MedBikini

Share

A study is only as good as its methods, and the #medbikini study wasn’t pretty bad.

Maybe you heard:¬† some researchers tried to help vascular surgeons understand that their social media profiles might contain “unprofessional” content.¬† Things like wearing swimsuits and swearing and drinking¬† *shudder* alcohol. Especially by wymmin! Okay, maybe it was better intentioned than that, but join Aline Sandouk, Eric Boeshart, and Ananya Munjal as they explore the ideas and the execution behind this now-retracted ‘study.’

Listener Logan wrote in to theshortcoats@gmail.com to ask why he’s getting the impression from the questions on his secondary applications that there is a divide between specialties and service.  

And Ananya talks about her recently launched arts journal for medical learners, The Appendix. It’s not just for CCOM students, either! Any health science student can join the fun!
