Appropriate topic for diversity secondary?
Hi all- I'm from a rural community in the Northeast. (meaning rural, but not to the extreme of locations in the midwest per se). This was my idea for a diversity secondary and I would appreciate any feedback: -I want to talk about coming from a rural area and a public school system where gangs, drugs, and teen pregnancy were very very prevalent. Our school had a lot of immigrant families as well and this built/grew my understanding of cultural awareness/diversity per se. I will then talk... Appropriate topic for diversity secondary?

Pregnancy and ƒluoro
Hello all, I am not an IR doc but I do practice pain medicine and perform a great deal of interventional procedures. I am not currently pregnant but actively trying. For the female IR docs or those who have females within your practice, what did you do / they do during pregnancy? I could likely get my partners to take over my procedure load but I'm not sure if that is completely necessary. Any input would be appreciated. (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Pharmacist stuck working as a tech
Hello everybody, I haven't posted here in a long time but I seem to be stuck in a situation that I am hoping someone else can relate to and maybe offer suggestions on how to get out of it. I graduated pharmacy school about 6 years ago and was fortunate enough to find a job as a pharmacist right after in NYC. About a year in, I got pregnant and was let go. I wasn’t able to find another pharmacist job after for awhile (apparently nobody wanted to hire me knowing that I would have to be out on...

Volunteering for Pregnancy Center over summer?
Hi, I was looking to do some volunteering over my M1 summer in my spare time (in addition to research) so I was considering volunteering for a crisis pregnancy center near me. I helped out a friend running the place here and there a few years ago before medical school, and would be interested in having more a major role. I did mention it in my interview to medical school, and my interviewer seemed to praise it, saying we need more people your age fighting for what's right. I really do...

Viability of a career in family medicine (vs. IM-PC)
I am very interested in primary care and starting to think about residencies in family vs internal medicine. Overall, I would say that all else equal I would probably choose family. I am drawn toward family medicine due to its comprehensive nature: I like the idea of being able to take on patients' children as my patients, continue taking care of patients when they get pregnant, and admit patients to the hospital as needed. I also think that I philosophically align with many of the family... Viability of a career in family medicine (vs. IM-PC) (Source: Student Doctor Network)
