    Is It Time to Retire?

    Is It Time to Retire?

    Making the decision about when to retire is never easy. Cognitive and technical skills may decline with age, but judgment and the ability to interact with patients improve as physicians gain experience. Physicians also tend to pay little attention to financial concerns and also find themselves unprepared for retirement when the get older. This article addresses concerns regarding self-assessment of clinical skills as well as facilitating action when a clinician observes a colleague whose clinical skills are faltering.
    The podcast features Barbara Schneidman, MD, MPH, from the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology; Bob Hyland, MD, from St Michael's Hospital in Toronto, and Christopher Muth, MD, Fishbein Fellow at JAMA.
    Learning Objectives: To understand the appropriate longevity of a physician’s career and how they should approach assessing their clinical skills as they age.

    What Should Students or Residents Do When Abused by Faculty

    What Should Students or Residents Do When Abused by Faculty

    Approximately one-third of all medical school graduates report having been abused as students. Medical student and resident abuse has long been considered unacceptable behavior but still persists in the teaching environment. In this podcast we discuss how students and residents might respond to these events. We interview Geoffrey Young, MD, from the Association of American Medical Colleges and Thomas J. Nasca, MD, from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, who discuss how they expect medical schools to respond to abusive behaviors and what resources are available to students and residents who have been abused to report those experiences without fearing retribution.

Every physician should listen to these

Well-constructed, real life with real solutions on a very "messy" topic. Excellent podcast - keep the episodes coming!

PathMax ,

Please make my state medical board apologize

They are paid to lie and learned nothing. The medical board lied about patient care in court.
