So you didn’t match this year?2020-07-01T18:52:08-04:00

Being apart of graduate medical education is one of the more fulfilling roles I serve as a physician. I get to be a part of the grooming process for medical students and Internal Medicine Resident Physicians alike. I love the fact that I get to help students achieve their ultimate goals whether it be in the field of Internal Medicine or which ever they ultimately end up in.

As the Program Director every year I pour through hundreds of applications looking for the next set of physicians who will be roaming the halls of Wellington Regional but we only have six spots available so it is inevitable that someone who would like to come train with me will not be able to. Every year their medical students across the world who start the ERAS process but don't end up matching when its all said and done.

I had the opportunity join my fried Dr. Nii Dark on his podcast Docs Outside the Box, to give my thoughts and tips for medical students who don't match during ERAS season. Take a listen and see if these are some valuable tips that you maybe able to pass on to someone in this position.

LLP152: Tips For The Resident Physicians2020-07-01T07:29:45-04:00
Program Director, Resident Physicians, July 1

Let's talk about Tips For The Resident Physicians …

On this week's episode of the Lunch and Learn with Dr. Berry I want to dedicate this one to my recent graduate class of 2020. As I get ready to usher in a new academic year I wanted to impart some wisdom into the new resident classes across the country.

In this episode, I talk about the journey of becoming a residency program director, what it was like being the fresh face in the program bringing in a sea of change and what is in store for new interns across the country.

I also take the chance to give a special shout out to my graduating class. These physicians started their medical career as residents when I started my career as a Program Director and I am just so proud of all their accomplishments.

    Despite early apprehension & negative feedback from her advisors she persisted and would go to the University of Chicago for her Urology residency and subsequent fellowship.

    She is apart of the Dupage Medical Group (the largest private practice group in Illinois) as their female pelvic floor surgeon which serves two large counties in the Chicago west and south suburbs. She is among the 2% of practicing black urologists nationwide. She is a wife and mother to 3 children.

    On this week's episode of the Lunch and Learn with Dr. Berry we have Dr. Kristyn Smith, a repeat guest of the show and current third year emergency room resident. With the global pandemic right at our footsteps a trend that that has unfortunately grown since the first outbreak was reported is the associated bias we have in healthcare.

    Implicit biases involve associations outside conscious awareness that lead to a negative evaluation of a person on the basis of irrelevant characteristics such as race or gender. In this episode we discuss how a whole nation faces ridicule on behalf of a disease that we aren't even sure originated from there.
