288: Summer Showcase – Being Yourself In Medicine with Dr. Andrew Tisser
Welcome to the first Doctor Me First Summer Showcase episode where we are spotlighting the other amazing doctor podcasts that are out there. Over the next eight weeks you will get to listen to an episode from a different doctor podcast and then a solo podcast from me.This first episode is from the Talk2MeDoc podcast with Dr. Andrew Tisser.
Join Dr. Andrew Tisser with Doctors Chase Anderson and Carl Streed Jr. as they talk about being yourself in medicine. They get into the systematic discrimination that people of color and different sexual identities get in the medical field. Chase and Carl also share what we can do to improve how we deal with these issues and support our words with actions.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
The privileges and friction brought about by intersectionality and identifying with the LGBTQ+ community.
Using strong emotions as a catalyst for change.
Asking consent before asking questions or bringing up topics that people might have problems with.
Being a lifelong learner. You have the power as a health professional to speak up and make a difference.
Changing behavior and conduct instead of forcing a change of beliefs.
