Dr. Richina Bicette: Fighting The Good Fight as a Physician Leader
My guest, Dr. Richina Bicette, as known as Dr. Richi, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM). She is originally from South Florida but completed her medical education at Emory University School of Medicine. While at a conference during her final year of medical school, Dr. Bicette became enamored with both the vision and the mission of Baylor’s Emergency Medicine program, and thus began her journey with BCM. Dr. Bicette was also named chief resident for the Baylor Emergency Medicine Residency, and during her tenure, she and her co-chiefs were awarded the national EMRA award for Chief Residents of The Year.
After completing her residency, she continued to further her training by completing an Administrative Fellowship within the Department of Emergency Medicine at Baylor. Dr. Bicette now currently serves as full-time clinical faculty while also holding administrative roles as the Medical Director of the Baylor St. Luke’s McNair Emergency Department and the Associate Medical Director of the Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center.
Dr. Bicette is also a nationally recognized health expert and medical correspondent and can often be seen on both international and national news programs, such as CNN, ABC’s Good Morning America, MSNBC NBC News, PBS, Univision, Yahoo Finance, and even Fox News, amongst others.
