Open on Applications about New-Found Sobriety?

Our recent show on mental illness in medical school generated some listener feedback. K wrote to say thanks for the honest discussion (our pleasure!), and wondered how open she should be on her medical school application about her journey to sobriety and how it led her to find a love for community service. Dave's six (!) co-hosts this week--Kalyn Campbell, Kylie Miller, Levi Endelman, Irene Morcuende, Kaci McCleary, and Laura Quast--agree that it's a tough question with two answers...the one we'd like to be able to give, and the perhaps more realistic one that acknowledges human nature.

Listener Erica called in wondering how students cope with the challenges of medical school and residency, especially in the context of a mental illness. And Terel dropped us a line to ask the differences between a hospitalist and an internist. Groundbreaking research from the Journal of the National Cancer Institute shows that alternative medicine is a crappy option for cancer patients' survival rates...except for prostate cancer. And a Chinese startup publishes a study in which CRISPR knocks out pig PERVs. That's Porcine Endogenous Retroviruses, silly, and it means if you need an organ transplant one day, you might have to thank a pig for that heart. Are you ready for your future pig heart? Who would win in an alpha-gal fight, Kylie or Kalyn? We'd love to hear your thoughts. Call us at 347-SHORTCT any time, and email theshortcoats@gmail.com.
