  • Summary

  • The InsideTheBoards podcast is dedicated to helping you learn to think like a question writer so you can study smarter, not harder. Our goal is to take you "Inside" the boards. With our special series like the Step 1 Study Smarter Series, we aim to dedicate a "season" toward helping you study based on the rhythm of medical education. Throughout the year, look for special "Study Smarter" series. In the Spring it's USMLE Step 1 and COMLEX Level 1. Early Summer it's Step 2. In the late fall, we'll help you Match Smarter in your chosen specialty. But we also will pepper in shows dedicated to particular shelf exams, Step 3, and other topics relevant to those involved in medical education.

Andrea Szabo is currently a third-year medical student at Case Western Reserve University. She majored in biomedical engineering at Boston University but was excited to return back home to Northeast Ohio for medical school. She had the opportunity to work closely with her mentor, Dr. Heidi Gullett for the first 6 months of the COVID-19 pandemic to design a contact tracing and cluster investigation program at the Cuyahoga County Board of Health. Together, they have worked to share their experience with others in the state and at other medical schools throughout the nation to help fight the pandemic. Sections from this episode include: What is a ‘system’ and what systems were utilized in your project How important understanding thinking in systems has proven during the Covid-19 pandemic The important role that students played in shaping the contact tracing program With support from Elsevier, and produced in collaboration with the American Medical Association, the HSS series seeks to broaden students’ understanding of the nature of medicine, medical education, and what separates them from other human endeavors. Medicine is not a “pure science,” a kind of “applied biology.” Rather, it is fundamentally an art that uses science. As a discipline, Health Systems Science considers those ideas and concepts which are integral to medicine as a profession but don’t fall under the domain of the clinical or basic sciences. The National Board of Medical Examiners includes HSS topics in its USMLE Content Outline and even offers a dedicated Health Systems Science subject examination. Each episode of this series will include on-the-go learning with practice exam questions explained by expert guests.  This series is sponsored by Panacea Financial: Banking Built for Doctors, by Doctors.

  • Health Systems Science | Healthcare Safety and Teams With Dr. Vinny Arora and Dr. Chase Corvin

    Feb 24 2021
    Today’s guests are Dr. Vinny Arora (@FutureDocs) and Chase Corvin (@ChaseCorvin) from the University of Chicago. Dr. Vineet Arora is the Herbert T. Abelson Professor of Medicine at the University of Chicago Medicine. As Associate Chief Medical Officer for the Clinical Learning Environment, she bridges education and clinical leadership to engage trainees and staff into the institutional quality, safety, and value mission. She is an elected member of the National Academy of Medicine whose work improving care and learning in teaching hospitals has been funded by NIH, AHRQ and the Macy Foundation, and has been cited over 10,000 times. Dr. Chase Corvin is a general surgery resident at the University of Chicago Medicine. In addition to his medical training, Dr. Corvin has degrees in economics and business administration. He is currently completing two years of dedicated research and collaborating separately with the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and the Federal Aviation Administration’s Air Traffic Organization to study quality improvement and efficiency within high reliability organizations. He also studies methods for improving interprofessional teaming within healthcare. “Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, our institution has aimed to improve interdisciplinary teaming in the care of our patients by increasing face-to-face communication between nursing and physicians/advanced practice providers. By engineering a standard communication console in patient rooms to display a novel MD/APP-in-Room button, physicians messaged nursing staff when they were at the bedside. After successful implementation on a pilot unit with improvements in length of stay and patient experience, we scaled up the implementation hospital-wide to address interprofessional communication challenges that occurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We present our findings that this innovation has had on our efficiency and collaboration in patient care as well as the challenges to interprofessional communication in a pandemic. Our work in hospital-wide implementation is ongoing, but we are seeing promising results similar to what we previously saw on our pilot-unit.” Sections from this episode include: Developing the “MD/APP In Room” button to improve patient experience and strengthen team communication How medical students can be better utilized and integrated into healthcare teams The importance of health systems science and using it to identify and remedy inefficiencies within healthcare teams With support from Elsevier, and produced in collaboration with the American Medical Association, the HSS series seeks to broaden students’ understanding of the nature of medicine, medical education, and what separates them from other human endeavors.

  • Health Systems Science | Population and Social Determinants of Health With Dr. Tonya Fancher and MS2 Mustafa Shakir

    Feb 17 2021
    Welcome back to our Health Systems Science series! This episode is about Population and Social Determinants of Health. Tonya Fancher, MD, MPH, is associate dean of workforce innovation and community engagement at UC Davis. She has created UME and GME pathways that address workforce shortages, including as PI on an AMA Accelerating Change in Medical Education grant with Kaiser Permanente to create a 3-year MD pathway and as co-PI on an AMA Accelerating Change in Resident Education grant with OHSU to create a regional collaborative to address physician shortages in rural, tribal, urban and communities between Sacramento and Portland. After completing a primary care general internal medicine residency at NYU and Bellevue Hospital, Dr. Fancher spent four years in the US Air Force. She graduated from Cornell University where she majored in Classics and in Biology. She is on Twitter @TonyaFancher. Mustafa Shakir is a second year medical student at UC Davis. He is currently preparing to take STEP 1, and is very excited to start year 3 to explore his varying interest in multiple specialties. In the past year, he has been extensively involved with the student run clinics at UCD, especially during the COVID pandemic. He is also currently working on his first soon-to-be publication relating to Alzheimer’s disease. He previously graduated from UC Santa Barbara, and obtained a BS in Biopsychology. Following the COVID-19 outbreak, concerns for student safety, shortages in personal PPE, and not-yet-defined safety protocols resulted in the closure of all twelve UC Davis Student-Run Clinics (SRCs). The SRCs are the sole providers of healthcare for thousands of multilingual, medically underserved, uninsured or marginalized members of the Sacramento community. Through the SRC’s, healthcare students engage in interprofessional collaboration to advocate for equitable patient care and learn to combat the barriers imposed by social determinants of health. Therefore, the aim of this project was to safely reestablish in-person operations at the SRCs for patients, who already have tenuous access to care, to receive essential services. Sections from this episode include: The importance of the social determinants and their impact on healthcare outcomes The importance of diversity in the healthcare workforce Keeping care accessible for vulnerable and underserved populations With support from Elsevier, and produced in collaboration with the American Medical Association, the HSS series seeks to broaden students’ understanding of the nature of medicine, medical education, and what separates them from other human endeavors.
