Pediatrics Group: Academic, Mental And Physical Benefits Of In-Person School Outweigh Coronavirus Risks

(CNN) — As states grapple with how to safely start the upcoming school year, the American Academy of Pediatrics is pushing for students to be physically present in classrooms rather than continue in remote learning for the sake of their well-being. The group, which represents and guides pediatricians across the country, updated its back-to-school recommendations to say evidence shows the academic, mental and physical benefits of in-person learning outweigh the risks from the coronavirus. “The AA...

How latent racism increases morbidity and mortality of our Black patients

Why do Black Americans have worse COVID outcomes?

Our country is currently battling two urgent and severe health care crises: COVID and systemic racism. We believe that addressing systemic racism now is as urgent and as dangerous to the health of our nation and its people as the COVID19 pandemic. In addition, we believe systemic racism is intersecting with the COVID-19 pandemic, as […] Find jobs at Careers by KevinMD.com. Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now. Learn more.

IMGs are abandoned during COVID

The Match is a stressful time during any physician’s life. Applicants study for, arrange for, and lose sleep over their USMLE steps, their letters of recommendation, and their personal statements. The matching process is particularly difficult during a global pandemic. As COVID-19 spread in March 2020, all USMLE testing was suspended.

A young mother’s medical school journey

I was 19 years old when I became pregnant. Pregnancy and birth, at such a young age, was both the happiest and the scariest thing to have happened to me.

Why it’s time for more black men in medicine

Despite major disparities that exist for African Americans in health outcomes and access to care, there is still an alarming lack of African American physicians in the field.

How Fast Can a Vaccine Be Made?: An Animated Introduction

From Ted-Ed comes a video that answers a timely question: How fast can a vaccine be made? They write: "When a new pathogen emerges, our bodies and healthcare systems are left vulnerable. And when this pathogen causes the outbreak of a pandemic, there’s an urgent need for a vaccine to create widespread immunity with minimal loss of life. So how quickly can we develop vaccines when we need them most? Dan Kwartler describes the three phases of vaccine development." Exploratory research, cli...

Lessons learned from my MPH gap year

A medical student’s physician inspiration

Amaka was a timid-looking girl, tall in stature with a head of braided hair, like myself. She was unassuming and composed at first glance and, if my hypothesis was correct, she could not have been older than me. We were similar, both being of Igbo heritage, but also different—Amaka was pregnant.

Hundreds of schools vulnerable to outbreaks because of vaccine reluctance, data suggests

A measles outbreak that began at Disneyland in 2014 led California lawmakers to tighten up vaccine requirements, eliminating personal and religious exemptions for school attendance..

(File photo by Michael Goulding, Orange County Register/SCNG) That law took effect in 2016, but the state’s most recent vaccination data — from the 2018-19 school year — show t...

Transition recommendations for the reporting of USMLE Step 1 scores as pass/fail

How medical education fails minority students

“You have to work twice as hard to get half as far.” As a black woman, this sentiment has haunted me for my entire life.

The black physician’s burden

Sir Isaac Newton’s Cure for the Plague: Powdered Toad Vomit Lozenges (1669)

Nearly 300 years after his death, Isaac Newton lives on as a byword for genius. As a polymath whose domain encompassed astronomy, physics, and mathematics, he mastered and expanded the domain of scientific knowledge available to 17th-century Europe. But if we remember him as a one-man engine of the scientific revolution, we should also bear in mind his contrasting intellectual frailties: Newton was no financial genius, as evidenced by his loss of $3 million in the South Sea Bubble of 1720, and ...

What’s next for medical students? The path is not so clear.

The History of the 1918 Flu Pandemic, “The Deadliest Epidemic of All Time”: Three Free Lectures from The Great Courses

In one cascade of events after another, people are finding out the normal they once knew doesn’t exist anymore. Instead it feels as if we’re living through several past crises at once, trying to cram as much historical knowledge as we can to make sense of the moment. 2020 especially feels like an echo of 1918-1919, when the “deadliest epidemic of all time,” as The Great Courses calls the “Spanish flu,” killed millions (then the U.S. devolved into a wave of racist violence.)

Medical education during COVID is more than a monolith

When a coalition of medical organizations, led by the American Medical Student Association (AMSA), petitioned in 2001 to cap medical resident work hours, they were turned down by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
