Someone pls help w/ disadvantaged portion
Can someone please tell me if the following is what the disadvantaged portion is supposed to be about? I am unsure if this will make me appear like a worse applicant?

Disadvantaged Essay?
Hey y'all I am having a bit of difficulty deciding if I should write a disadvantaged essay. Apologies if this is the wrong place! My living situation has greatly improved over the years and I am very grateful but did face some challenges during my childhood (up until middle school) that I would mainly focus on. My family was not well off and I did not have insurance as a child, which greatly affected my view of the doctor's office (and playing on the playground haha). Additionally, my...

Ab 1400
Calcare is a M4A style single payor universal healthcare. Supported by 65% of Californians. We have a large proportion of indigent and uninsured patients. Would be nice if everyone is covered. Private insurance companies will oppose it. https://cdn.ymaws.com/www.naswca.org/resource/resmgr/files/2021lld/AB-1400-fact-sheet.pdf (Source: Student Doctor Network)

New Private Practice - How to build a referral network.
Hello everyone. Recently started my own private practice (cash only, no insurance). Wondering how others approached building a referral network in the community. Some obvious ideas include contacting therapists/doctors in the community. But I was wondering if others have more ideas? Do you think cold calling is better, or emails? Anyone willing to share their experience? Thanks! (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Arranging follow up: medical-legal risk?
I'm a newish EM attending, who recently started practicing in a new hospital that has much fewer resources than places I've previously worked. The call panel gets more and more bare bones everyday--no neurosurg, cardiothoracic, ENT, ophtho, OMFS, ortho, plastics, hand. On top of that, the population is heavily Spanish-speaking only, heavily uninsured/Medicaid only, and patients frequently have no PMD. Wondering if anyone can share best practices on how they set up follow up care with... Read more (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Bad to have multiple low-hour volunteer activities?
So I'm at the point where I'm prepping for reapplication in case things don't go my way this cycle. The only red flag on my application that I'm aware of is a significant lack of volunteer hours. I want to increase at least the clinical volunteering hours, but I haven't been able to find opportunities that offer a lot of hours and that work in my schedule. This semester, I have joined the volunteer team with a mobile clinic that serves uninsured patients in my area, but they don't have any... Read more (Source: Student Doctor Network)
