The importance of sitting with patients

Dhruv Khullar, a current resident at Massachusetts General Hospital, explains the inherent trade-off between empathy and efficiency, and the importance of sitting with every patient.

The unmet needs of medical learners

Medical educators aren’t meeting the needs of today’s students, so they are creating new tools themselves. Ryan Haynes, co-founder Osmosis, share’s why and how.

Today's pre-medical learners

ePatient scholar Nisha Pradhan explains how premedical students are learning today and what about their curriculum needs to be changed.
