Description

Chrissa wrote in to say that she believes that complementary and alternative medicine systems should be more important to mainstream, Western medicine. In fact, she's studying Ayurvedic medicine, and she wants to know if she should talk about it in her future medical school admissions applications and interviews. Gabe Conley, Patrick Brau, Elizabeth Shirazi, and Derek Bradley (along with several other co-hosts I put the question to) offer their advice to Chrissa, which is, sure, but be careful how you do it. Researchers publish results that show bacteria may have been busy developing resistance to Ampicillin even before it was made available for prescription in 1962. Modern Americans are preparing for bloody combat by learning battlefield medicine. And we consider evidence that surgical patients may be more aware of pain than Dave is real comfortable with. Did Dave offend you with his jokes about CAM? Are you studying CAM or have an interest in using it in your practice some day?
