Emotions are difficult to ignore. Especially when those emotions are telling us to ACT NOW! That’s what listener Jordan from Texas is fighting as he happily gets an acceptance from his backup, with no word from his dream school. Should he commit now? Should he sit tight? Co-hosts Brandon Bacalzo, Michael Gardeau, Jessica De Haan, and Cody West (All M1s) share their experiences and advice for Jordan.
And Dave continues his quest to learn all he can about his med student friends with a game of Would You Rather.

This week, first-year medical student Corbin Weaver joins the team, and gives Keenan Laraway the low-down on her orientation week experiences. We discuss the alleged shady medical theories of Dr. Henry Heimlich (of the eponymous maneuver), a 6-year-old’s MAGEC spine correction treatment, Walmart’s desire to be your primary care doc’s office, and a device that might just revolutionize the transportation of (and therefore the whole process of transplanting) donor organs.
