Why medical trainees need knowledge and education on health care systems and policy [PODCAST]

“As medical trainees, we will shape the rapidly changing health care environment in this country. We are fiercely advocating for our disadvantaged patients, debating the price of life-saving medications, and carefully considering how the upcoming elections will shape the health care system in which we both provide and receive care. All the while, we handle our responsibilities and prepare to care for critically ill patients during a seemingly inevitable pandemic. These diverse issues bring to light a huge deficit in medical education — the lack of training on complex health systems.”

Daniel Arteaga is an internal medicine resident. Isobel Rosenthal is a psychiatry resident. Lauren Tronick is a medical student. They are founders of the podcast, Well Rounded.

They share their story and discuss Daniel and Isobel’s KevinMD article, “Medical trainees need knowledge and education on health care systems and policy.”
