"It's Not Right, But It's The Way Things Are"

10/1/2020
Sometimes, you just need people to tell you the truth, even if the truth isn't something you might want to hear. A good mentor not only points out your strengths but also helps you correct weaknesses as well. In this mentor moment, Bushra remembers a hard, but important, piece of advice from her first year of undergraduate.

"You Need to Start Saying, 'I Can Do This'"

9/24/2020
It's a strange dynamic when everyone around you gives you praises and compliments, but you're full of negative self-doubt. Words can have the ability to bring you down, but it can also just as easily prop you up. In this mentor moment, Leen shares one of the most important lessons she learned in med school.

"It's Your Medical Team... May We Enter?"

9/17/2020
The subjective education taught in medical school can cause medical professionals to presume patients will inherently give their trust, thus allowing us to move freely in their space and examine them without questioning. In this mentor moment, Margaux recalls an informal, but important, lesson learned while performing patient care.

"She Didn't Look Like the Professors I Thought I Would See"

9/10/2020
The way someone looks can impact our views of them—but it shouldn't. Someone's words and actions are the things that should matter. In this mentor moment, Harjit remembers a brief but impactful moment that helped her reflect on her own way of viewing the world.

"You Should Say it Without Casting a Shadow of Doubt"

9/3/2020

"I Was Meant to be an Emergency Room Physician"

8/27/2020
No matter how passionate you are, doubt from others can do wonders in bringing you down. In this mentor moment, Leen thinks back to a moment she observed as a med student in the emergency room and reflects on how watching someone else's passion reignited hers.

"You Did a Great Job... I Know It's Hard"

8/20/2020
Starting something new can come with a learning curve and imposter syndrome is very real. In this mentor moment, Margaux thinks back to words from a team leader and reflects on how simple words and acts of encouragement can make an immense difference for someone struggling to find their place.

"You Matter, and Your Voice Matters"

8/13/2020
We should remember that we are all connected and intertwined, and so we should be uplifting each other.

Inclusion vs. Tokenism (re-release)

7/30/2020
Diversity can be a sensitive subject for some, and the line separating inclusion and tokenism can be blurry. Merriam-Webster defines tokenism as, "the policy or practice of making only a symbolic effort, as to desegregate." Have you ever been tokenized?

Language Barriers in Healthcare (re-release)

7/23/2020
Medicine, like the human body, is a universal science. But a difference in language can create a barrier between physician and patient. How do we navigate something so universally similar when effective communication is missing?

Duration:00:18:15

Recognizing Cultural Backgrounds in Medicine (re-release)

7/16/2020
"Every patient should be treated the same." WRONG! Quite the opposite—we believe no two patients should receive the same care. From their health conditions to their cultural backgrounds, each patient is different. Acknowledging and understanding the differences will help you provide better care.

Allyship, Part II (re-release)

7/9/2020
It's easy to go with the flow—going against the current is the difficult task. And bringing up topics of race, prejudice, biases, and discrimination can be uncomfortable. But it's okay to be comfortable with being uncomfortable, because being an ally can be uncomfortable. Allyship is "the key to unlocking the power of diversity.” In part two of a two-part discussion, Harjit and Margaux talk to Dr. Amy Cowan about what it means to be an ally.

Duration:00:27:28

Allyship, Part I (re-release)

7/2/2020
Race and discrimination can be sensitive topics that people may find uncomfortable to speak about. But they don’t have to be. Talking about race doesn’t make you racist. Not talking about race doesn’t mean you’re not racist. Allyship is "the key to unlocking the power of diversity.” In part one of a two-part discussion, Harjit and Margaux talk to Dr. Amy Cowan about what it means to be an ally.

Being an Activist in Healthcare (re-release)

6/25/2020
You wanna change the world, heal its wounds, and make it a better place … all while studying for next week’s test. But when you’re worried about numbers and scores, the reason you’re studying medicine in the first place can be hard to hold onto. Margaux and Leen talk about activism in med school and what it means to be an activist and advocate in healthcare.

Decolonizing Medical Research (re-release)

6/18/2020
It should be admitted that not all research are conducted equally with everyone in mind, because everyone is a lot of people. As human beings, and especially as medical experts, we should challenge the information we learn and ask whether it is real knowledge or skewed bias. We should critically think about the ideas that might have formed throughout our life due to outside influences. In this episode, Margaux, Harjit, and Bushra talk about how medical literatures can be colonized and what...

Confronting Anti-Black Racism (re-release)

6/4/2020
Medicine is entrenched in anti-Black racism, just like every other institution. We are active participants in perpetuating harm. It's important to acknowledge the effects that racism has on our communities, whether it be discrimination for some or privilege for others. In this episode, we discuss contributions of anti-Black racism.
