Tiger Country Resurrected - Episode Three: Professionalism
In this episode, Milos, DuBose, and I discuss a fascinating topic, Professionalism, with David Spain, MD. Dr. Spain is the David L. Gregg, MD Professor and Chief of Acute Care Surgery at Stanford University, which, I hear, is a pretty good institution. Earlier this year, Dr. Spain and his colleagues published their work in the Annals of Surgery associating patient outcomes with the admitting or consulting services' tendency to accrue complaints about their professionalism. Their results - which are somehow both shocking and not shocking - showed that if a patient was cared for by a service with high incidence of unprofessional behavior, their risk of complications and death was higher. So that begets the question* - what is professionalism? What is unprofessional behavior? How can we make sure that we're being professional, and how can be help our trainees and our colleagues be professional?
We finish by discovering that Dr. Spain is fond of The Weeknd and his wife is a Posty. As it turns out, Milos is really into 6ix9ine and DuBose loves Mac Miller. Me? I'm all about Bladee, baby.
*It's not 'begs the question.' Begging the question is a logical fallacy in which the premise of an argument relies upon the truth of the conclusion.
