Do doctors do what they preach Sharp Scratch

    • Science

At medical school, we learn about the importance of healthy health behaviours and promote them to patients at consultations. But do you always do what you preach?

In this episode, we chatted about the importance of self-care, admitting to the inability to be infallible, and whether your health habits would affect the way you counsel your patients.

Expert guest:
Professor Erica Frank (erica.frank@ubc.ca) is a Professor at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of British Columbia; she is also the Founder of NextGenU.org.

• Experiences of belittlement and harassment and their correlates among medical students in the United States: longitudinal survey - https://www.bmj.com/content/333/7570/682
