“I’ve Got Some Bad News”

When many people think about becoming a physician, they focus on the positive side of the practice of medicine. Things like diagnosing and successfully treating patients, forming therapeutic relationships, and even income and prestige get most attention. But there is one thing that receives less attention: sometimes, doctors deliver very bad news to their patients. Learning how to do that gracefully in a way that supports patients rather than devastating them is an important skill. And in a team-based environment, it can be tricky. M3 Marc Moubarek shows M1s Joyce Wahba, Gabe Conley, and new co-host Claire Casteneda the ropes. Of course, Dave devises an educational exercise to "help." In other bad news, it's not getting any easier to get into medical school...in fact, it's getting harder. In the last decade, applications have doubled for top 10 schools focusing on primary care, and others (like Iowa) have increased 1.5 times. Time to be interesting, applicants! Are you doing something more interesting than checking off the boxes on your medical school application? We definitely want to know about it. Call us at 347-SHORTCT anytime, visit our Facebook group, or email theshortcoats@gmail.com. If you're doing something really interesting, maybe we'll interview you on the show
