Another “Match Day” has come and gone, and the ancient hierarchy of medicine tries desperately to maintain its magical facade.
In Episode 3 of Against Medical Advice we dive into the longstanding biases around speciality choice for doctors and the arcane ritual of the Match. What happens when we return these newly minted interns to 24hr+ shifts from their current 16? The answers may not be as simple as they appear, Harry.
We visit with docs at the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) leadership meeting in Washington, D.C. and get their take on this stuff. Also, I put the Imperius curse on the entire 800 doc audience…watch the opener and see!
Finally, we talk sleep deprivation and Shift Work Disorder. It’s another action-packed episode of Against Medical…zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Editor's Note: Before unleashing your butthurt, remember: this is satire. The idea is to point out ridiculous stereotypes and assumptions and shine a light in the dark places. Congrats to all those who have matched and do those who didn't: you will find your calling when and where you least expect it!
