Stop Gatekeeping “Doctor.”

Share

Yes, you will (did) work hard to get your MD, but others have doctorates, too.  Lighten up.

  • Noah (M2), Ariele (PA2), Nicole (M2), and Miranda (MSTP) discuss the impulse many MDs and MDs-to-be have to gatekeep the word “doctor” when advanced practice providers use it.
  • PhDs, DNPs, AuDs and many more also have doctorates. Instead of worrying about who worked harder to get it, better perhaps to support each other and not worry about who deserves to call themselves a doctor.
  • The American Board of Radiology did something crazy–they told programs their trainees will get a bunch of leave for birthing and non-birthing parents to care for their newborns.
  • Noah and Ariele try the third hand experiment. Tik Tok science for the win? Or is it social pseudoscience?

Some things all students should know when entering medical school

  • Riley, Sahaana, Nicole, and newbie Mao discuss their answers to questions that incoming students often ask about medical school

  • In the news: a medical student is suspended for allegedly retaliating against a patient with an extra needlestick; and we try to replicate the latest science from Tik Tok. Yes, it’s the Hanger Reflex.

Serving Your Patients Shouldn’t Just Happen in the Office

TL;DR

  • Urologist Amy Pearlman has built her practice upon the opportunities offered by YouTube, Twitter, and Tik Tok.
  • The one question no one asks themselves that can help you decide on your future specialty: what can’t you live without?
  • Medical school does not teach you how to be a doctor. That’s what residency and fellowships are for.

Dr. Amy Pearlman is a urologist who operates a men’s health clinic at the University of Iowa. Co-hosts AJ Chowdhury (M1) and Aline Sandouk (MD/PhD) suggested her as a guest on the show, and boy is he glad he listened. Dr. Pearlman has so much to offer students on everything from offering patients value before they even arrive for their in-office visit, picking a specialty, and why men need a provider that focuses on their needs just as women do.

AJ and Aline join M3 Mason LaMarche and M4 Zach Tully for a fantastic conversation with Dr. Pearlman that could change the way you think about your future medical career.

Also, Dave keeps reading about a humanity-extinguishing sperm count “crisis.” But The New York Times reports on new research that suggests the crisis is non-existent.
