What Physicians and Medical Students Say About Virtual Electives
Engaging with the media reaps educational benefits for physicians as well. I do not plan to become a health journalist, but I am struck by how much I learned during my media immersion. I have a greater understanding of how health news is made, and I am more credible when I counsel patients who have questions about health topics they read online or saw on TV.
As a future forensic pathologist, I will be responsible for rendering diagnoses to clinical colleagues. I will also be called upon to speak with deceased patients’ family members, knowing that the information I provide may help them heal. That’s why honing my communication skills so that I can share important medical information in a manner that everyone can easily comprehend is so important to me.
