Ryan is joined by Ryan from thewhitecoatfitness.com who shares what he has learned about maintaining health and fitness through medical school. Take a listen!
Dr. Danielle Ofri has a great piece in the New York Times titled “The Physical Exam as Refuge.” Allison and I discuss this and give our thoughts for the premed.
Allison and I build upon Session 69 and talk about the family meeting. It is during these family meetings that you must have the art of communication down. Family meetings are what many families remember the most of a loved ones hospital stay, so you owe them the best possible experience.
Ryan and Allison go through everything premeds and medical students wish was under the tree for Christmas (or the Hanukkah bush! :)). We cover books, tools and more.
