EM Stud Podcast – Gender Bias

emstudcdembanner

Traveling.  Smiling.  Asking one… more… question… when you’ve already asked them all.

Residency interviews can already be pretty stressful.  But on top of that, what if you’re asked about your marital status?  Or whether you plan on having kids during residency?

In this episode, Dr. Charlotte Wills, Residency Program Director at Highland EM in Oakland, CA, and Dr. Dara Kass (@darakass), Director of Undergraduate Medical Education at NYU and Editor-in-Chief of FemInEm.org, share their thoughts and research about gender and other forms of bias during residency interviews.

New series on EM Stud: What I Want To Be When I Grow Up

Being an emergency physician isn’t always just about working shifts in the ED. For some, it’s about exploring new niches and specializing in areas outside of the conventional clinical realm.

To kick off our new series, we invited Dr. Kyle Marshall, clinical informatics fellow at Geisinger Health System, to clue us in on what it means to be an informatician.

And for the first time, we’re asking YOU for your ideas to solve the problem presented in the podcast. Just leave your proposed solution in the comments section below. Best ideas may even be considered for a prize!  Good luck!

EM Stud Podcast – Application Yellow Flags

emstudcdembanner

Do you have a Step 1 or Step 2 score that’s below your peers? Or perhaps you didn’t do so well on a 3rd year rotation, or had to take some time off in the middle of medical school? We consider these things yellow flags–not absolute deal breakers, but parts of your application that may stick out and require some explanation during an interview.

To gather some insight on how best to address these yellow flags, we’re joined by Drs. Sameer Desai (@sameermd1) and Jonathan Bronner (@Bronski_EM) from the University of Kentucky. For more information about their residency program, visit wildcatem.com.

emstudcdembanner

With interview season right around the corner, students all over the world are doing some serious reflecting on the perfect response to the inevitable question…

“Why did you choose Emergency Medicine?”

But it just doesn’t seem fair that they be the only ones to answer. So, we rounded up some friends, colleagues, and special guests and asked them to share the source of their inspiration.

A very special thanks to Drs. Michelle Lin, Salim Rezaie, Rob Rogers, Will Sanderson, Steve Carroll, Kevin King, and Bruce Bollinger for lending us their backstories.
