Podcast Episode: America Needs More Minority Doctors & Nurses: Why & How. Featuring Dr. Melvyn Harrington.
It’s a well-known fact that women do better with female doctors, and minorities do better with doctors that look like them, but both demographics are underrepresented in surgical medicine. The reasons are complex, but the requirement is obvious: we need more men and women from minority backgrounds to aspire to the medical professions in general, and more specifically to be surgeons. Parents need to encourage our middle-schoolers to choose a medical career (starting early is better), and then the mentoring and support that helps with studies and personal development can bring about success. Dr. Melvyn Harrington describes the active network of support that exists to facilitate inclusive participation in medical training, and the part his organization plays. With Eileen Bodie.
