Applying: Your Experience Is A Bonus, If You Can Tell The Right Story

E[Would you like a FREE Short Coat pin made by Dave’s own two hands? Share an episode of SCP online and email a screenshot to theshortcoats@gmail.com!] Listener Christy has several years as a South Carolina emergency department nurse under her belt. But for a while now, she’s been planning to change careers, with her sights set on an MD. She very much wants, however, to be able to discuss her current work during interviews without coming across as a know-it-all. We don’t often do this, but Dave decided to invite Christy on the show as a co-host to talk about it, and with Short Coats Anna Wilcox, Camilla Koczara, Greta Becker, and Hannah Steenblock, suggest some strategies to her live and in-person. As a special bonus, Christy’s been working with COVID-19 patients, so we get to find out a little about her experience on the front lines. Plus we enjoy a poorly thought-out exercise straight from Dave’s brain on ethical dilemmas. This is your chance to find out: would the co-hosts al...

Applying: Your Experience Is A Bonus, If You Can Tell The Right Story

More Signs that Med School Will Be Different This Fall

E[This episode is brought to you by Pattern. We hope you’ll check out their disability insurance offerings for docs at http://patternlife.com/partner/shortcoat.] As many of us are, The Short Coats–including this week’s M1 co-hosts Nathen Spitz, Maddie Wahlen, and Caitlin Matteson–have been gazing into their cracked crystal ball to discover the new shape of medical school amid the pandemic. In a previous episode, the crew prognosticated on how interviews would change (and how you can be sure those changes won’t scuttle your chances for interview success), for instance…and it turns out we were right! Adding some certainty to that, the Association of American Medical Colleges has cancelled all its conferences until July of 2021. So yeah. Sandgroper Largemun, an anonymous listener from Australia, wants to know some ways that he can stand out in medical school to land that choice residency. Good thing you wrote to us at theshortcoats@gmail.com, Sandgroper, because we have ideas for ...

More Signs that Med School Will Be Different This Fall

This Student's Shame is Changing Our Curriculum

Doctors and medical students often have an identity based on perfection and infallibility. Often it that identity comes from their own expectations of themselves, and sometimes it comes from external sources. Whatever the source, it's both motivating and problematic to feel shame when mistakes are madeor when knowledge is imperfect. Fourth-year student and future OB/Gyn doc Luci Howard visited with MD/PhD student Aline Sandouk and M1s Caitlin Matteson, Morgan Kennedy, and Emerald Dohleman to talk about her project to create a curriculum about shame and medical student identity. Her shame--as a first-gen college graduate, as a perfectionist, and as someone who's made mistakes--was holding her hostage in some ways, but now her curriculum works to illuminate and combat the negative effects of shame in medical education, and it will soon be integrated into the College of Medicine's curriculum. Her work means that future medical learners will learn how to react productively and rationall...

Crush It In Your Zoom Interview

EYour future could include video conference interviews. Avoid (at all costs) giving interviewers a reason to say no. Photo by hang_in_there This episode is brought to you by Pattern. We hope you’ll check out their disability insurance offerings for docs at http://patternlife.com/partner/shortcoat. Are Zoom interviews the future? They could be, if some sort of magic doesn’t intervene in the course of the pandemic. Meanwhile, everyone has a love-hate relationship with video conferencing, and Dave fears that those on the sharp end of the interview may not have the technology and skills to shine brightly. So, with the help of Brandon Bacalzo, Sahaana Arumugam, Nathan Spitz, and Claire Carmichael (all M1s who, like you, are in the thick of virtual everything right now), we collect our thoughts on how you can remove the distractions and subconscious biases that could sink your interview.

How the Sausage is Made: Why Doctors–and Students–Must Engage In Politics

EPhoto by greyloch Policy is not sexy. I mean, it’s not saving lives, or curing disease, or making groundbreaking discoveries. But it isn’t a stretch to say that policy is as important as any of these, because politicians are making decisions about health and healthcare that affect millions of patients and their physicians. The laws they come up with determine what you can do for your patients, how you practice medicine, how you get paid, what kinds of care are legal or illegal, and much, much more. Seems like something doctors should pay attention to, perhaps even get directly involved with. M4 and future surgeon Sarah Eikenberry got a glimpse of the process as the first student to take the Carver College of Medicine’s new advocacy clerkship. Think you know how a bill gets passed? You might be surprised to know that Schoolhouse Rock didn’t tell us the whole story. Her self-assigned project for the clerkship was to get a bill passed in the Iowa state legislature to include the St...

How the Sausage is Made: Why Doctors–and Students–Must Engage In Politics

On Being The Crudest Patient

EDave wants to help his co-hosts--M1s Nathan Spitz, Cody West, and newbs Chris Halbur and Eli Schmidt--in their journey to physician-hood, so he puts on his medical educator hat and visits Yahoo! Answers. He also discovers that when discussing his complaint with the doctor, he wants to be the crudest possible kind of patient. Senorina Espanole (not her real name) writes in to tell us what she's doing to keep busy and help her community while being socially distant. And Dave explains why toilet paper hoarding might not actually be what's happening. This Week in Medical News: In another sign that the old rules which society and even medicine function were, to some extent, arbitrary, the FDA has relaxed the blood donation guidelines for gay men. Doctors treating patients with COVID can't get adequate PPE, or tests, and now they can't even get paid. And the White House fax machine ran out of paper but because we live in THE FYOOOOTTTUURE, luckily hospitals can email their COVID testing r...

On Being The Crudest Patient

What We’re Still Doing, What Brings Us Joy

EDave asked listeners what they’re doing to help out in the time of COVID-19 and got some responses back to talk about. These things, whether big or small, directly related or tangential to this public health crisis–even if it means staying at home–are all part of an unusual effort among the people of the world to contribute to a greater purpose. Whether it’s making PPE, making explainer videos, picking up garbage outside, or staying home, it’s all important. Which reminded Dave of a New Yorker article on why many people find it so difficult to believe that this massive effort of social distancing and lockdowns is a good idea. And we talk about the things that still are able to bring us joy even when we can’t venture out of the house.

What We’re Still Doing, What Brings Us Joy

PODCASTING FROM A (SOCIAL) DISTANCE

E(For the first time ever, we did the show with all five hosts in different places, and it shows. Forgive the scratchy audio in some places. We're working on it, and hope you can look past it this time.) In this time of social distancing, The Short Coats reluctantly step back from their education and research. New co-hosts M1s Ananya Munjal and Claire Carmichael, along with MD/PhD students Aline Sandouk and Miranda Schene, discuss the national residency Match statistics, what their lives look like as they distance themselves from other humans. This Week in Medical News: A 3D printing company comes to Italy's rescue, making ventilator parts, then gets sued for patent infringement for their trouble. Flattening the curve may look more like flattening many curves. And some believers in Indian traditional medicine suggest drinking cow urine will fight COVID-19.

PODCASTING FROM A (SOCIAL) DISTANCE

COVID-19 COULD CHANGE THE WORLD...FOREVER

EThere's no doubt that the global pandemic of COVID-19 has caused much human suffering. And for those people around the world who are the worst affected, know that you have our deepest sympathies. No one should have to go through this. Nevertheless, something compelled Dave to think about the ways that society might change as a result of the pandemic...in some ways, perhaps for the better; in others, perhaps things will just different than were before. Either way, co-hosts Eric Boeshart, Kenzie McKnight, Michael Gardeau, and Nathen Spitz try to look into the crystal ball a bit. Next up, the crew answers some listener questions. "Lex Turesboreme" wants some advice on using lectures wisely when attendance isn't required. And Soon-to-be-Dr-Ray is looking for some perspectives on which school to enroll in: the DO school or the MD school. We're on it, friends! And Dave takes the opportunity to put on his fake medical educator hat to give a pop quiz on historical epidemics.
