Episode 18: Perspectives on Medical Education: from a Senior Associate Dean to a Second Year Student (Guests Dr. Alan Tunkel and Leigh Kinney).

On today’s show, I interview two folks from the Warren Alpert Medical School at Brown University, one who is shaping policy, and the other who is learning to be a physician. Great conversations about integrating remote learning, how to maximize safety, and also standardized testing and adapting to life in medical school.
