Original Article: Which is More Important: the MCAT or Your Job?
Should you put your life on hold for the MCAT?
This Week’s Medical NewsAs a planned parenthood sex educator, listener T’keyah wants to know what medical schools teach about meeting the needs of LGBTQIA+ patients. Amy Young, Patrick Brau, Liza Mann, and Teneme Konne can’t, of course speak for all medical schools, but they can speak about what they are learning: quite a lot, not least because we have an LGBTQ clinic they can rotate on! T’keyah snuck a second question in, too: she loves her job, and it’s important work. So, is the advice she’s gotten to stop working while studying for the MCAT valid?

With this in mind it is only logical that, in the name of science, Dave has his co-hosts stick their hands in ice water and recite Dr. Seuss. Will they be able to withstand the ethically induced pain?
