When should you consider a Caribbean medical school?

"If we want to achieve a physician workforce that mirrors our population, medical schools must collectively understand that we have created an admissions system that selects against Latinx and BIPOC students. We need a new system. But a new admission system will not be enough. More medical students of color, while a start, is not the complete answer: We need more doctors of color."

Bulletproof backpacks: There’s more we can do

"As a parent of elementary school children, every mass shooting, particularly ones killing school children like in Uvalde, jolts my doing-the-mom-thing-just-keep-busy-can’t-stop denial. On the last day of school before summer vacation, when the bus doors squeaked open, and my kids hopped off, I experienced a momentary sense of relief. They were safe for one more day, at least from school shootings. I hugged my kindergartener and patted the head (that’s all I’m allowed to do) of my fifth grader. Now that a new school year is looming, it’s all I can do not to click on the article about bulletproof backpacks."

Time constraints in physical therapy

"Picture this. A patient in a hospital or rehab facility has just finished exercising with therapy. He is thirsty, and he thinks he might as well ask for a snack now because he will be hungry in 30 minutes. His therapist sets him up in his wheelchair (brakes locked), tray table with all necessities positioned in front of him, with his call bell within reach. As she approaches the door to leave, she turns and asks, 'Is there anything else I can do for you?' The patient nods and asks for a refill of his water cup and some peanut butter crackers. The therapist grimaces. What should she do?" Hannah T. Todd is a physical therapist. She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, "A pervasive culture of time constraints in health care."

The Podcast by KevinMD

Hosted by Kevin Pho, MD, The Podcast by KevinMD shares the stories of the many who intersect with our health care system but are rarely heard from.

There are many physician podcasts out there, and I was hesitant to throw my hat into the podcasting ring. After all, there are many physician-interviewers better at the craft than I am.

Then I thought back to the mission of KevinMD: To share the stories of the many who intersect with our health care system, but are rarely heard from. Over the years, KevinMD gave a voice to those in health care who may not be famous or have a big name. But their stories are no less powerful or important.

I want to bring these voices into the podcasting realm, so you can hear them tell their own stories, in their own words.
