Pursuing a Medical Career While Black: What it Takes and Why it Matters

Authors: Saul Weiner and Stefan Kertesz
Submitted by: Kerensa Peterson, University of California Riverside

“Making it into and through medical school is tough even for those who have all the advantages: excellent schools starting at a young age, well-educated parents who may be doctors themselves, lots of role models and…white skin. In this episode we hear from two pre-meds and one newly minted physician, all Black, about their journeys with few of these advantages. Despite their remarkable optimism, their burdens are evident, and many do seem tied to race, as it is understood in the US. The extreme underrepresentation of Blacks in medicine should be a source of deep concern for the profession and for society, as a matter of social justice as well as patient care. The passion of these young men and woman is inspiring, and the mentorship opportunities provided by pipeline programs like the I Am Abel Foundation, which has been central to their lives, offers hope.”

AOA is a medical honors society that’s supposed to separate top-tier medical students from the rest of the pack. It helps determine which doctors get the top jobs in the most competitive fields. The problem? There’s implicit racism in the way it chooses members, and fixing it may be a massive challenge.

Author: Shankar Vedantam,
Submitted by: Dan Brown, Emory University

Hidden Brain is a podcast that “reveals the unconscious patterns that drive human behavior, and the biases that shape our choices.” Nearly every episode illuminates our work in Human Simulation in some way, but the episode “When Everything Clicks” is particularly applicable.

An Arm and a Leg: An Actor Walks into a Doctor’s Office

Host: Dan Weissmann
Submitted by: Marsha Harman, Rush University

Researcher Saul Weiner has been sending fake patients — actors, wired for sound — into real doctors’ offices, to learn about what actually happens, especially: How well doctors really listen to their patients.  He’s tallied up what doctors miss (a lot), and how much it costs (ditto).  In today’s episode, we hear what actually happened in one of those “secret shopper” doctor visits — with the doctor and the actor who played his patient reading from the transcript of their visit, and then unpacking what went wrong.

Why We Choke Under Pressure – And How to Avoid It

By: Sian Leah Beilock
Submitted by: Dan Brown, Emory University School of Medicine

In this TED Talk, Sian Leah Beilock borrows from her history of playing soccer to discuss strategies for performing under pressure. As SP Educators, we are frequently working with medical students who are under immense pressure, and we often hear from their instructors that their performance on the test doesn’t reflect their skill as a student. Beilock addresses factors for “choking,” such as contagious anxiety and overthinking things that should be on autopilot, and suggests strategies for overcoming the pressure. Passing along these strategies, such as jotting down worries or practicing under performance conditions, could help the students perform more to their potential.
