    Hospital for Sale: A Story of Bankruptcy and the Orphaning of Medical Trainees

    Dan talks with Dr. David Aizenberg and Dr. Nihaal Karnik about what happened at Hahnemann University Hospital’s residency program when the hospital filed for bankruptcy and abruptly closed in 2019. They discuss the fallout, and the implications for the 500+ residents left scrambling to find new jobs. The Hahnemann story is a timely reminder of the financial, emotional and physical vulnerabilities of being a graduate medical trainee, especially now as thousands of residents nationwide work on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.

A very thoughtful and educational show

I really love the style and candor of the show. The hosts do a great job approaching issues in an unbiased way and the information present is well balanced and thoughtful.

This show also came at a great time- as an incoming medical student I have been on the lookout for ways to be more engaged with healthcare policy and educate myself before entering school and the workforce. This show does just that. What perfect timing!

Love it

Really interesting for clinicians and non-clinicians alike. Love the rapport in the interviews. My only complaint is I wish they were longer!
