Although the scholarship is primarily for those in undergraduate studies, students enrolled “in a covered clinical training program for health care professionals" are also eligible. In the 116th Congress, Rep. Lauren... Read more (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Roe v. Wade: implications for psychiatrists?
Recognizing that this topic is a lightning rod, I am interested in hearing people's thoughts on the implications today's ruling has for us as psychiatrists. Particularly from folks who were practicing prior to the original decision, currently practicing in places with extremely limited access to reproductive health care, and people working in CL settings. Not interested in a debate about rights and wrongs of the law, but rather how this change may impact our clinical practice. (Source: Student Doctor Network)

disposable physicians
This is a bit disturbing. Sad that a physician completing 12 years of education can be considered a cog in a machine and manipulated this way by people who only went to school for 4-6 years and likely underperformed academically compared to most physicians.
