Return of White Coat, Black Art

A few months ago, I had the honor of reading my “Letter to a Young Doctor” on the medical documentary series White Coat, Black Art‘s season finale.

I would encourage everyone to check out the rather insightful show, hosted by ER physician and medical broadcaster Dr. Brian Goldman, who interviews health care “insiders.”  There is emotion, there is grit, and there is always brutal honesty.

The show recently began another season, and I have another brief appearance on this week’s episode.  Although the episode is about nurse bullying and fairly sobering, my segment was decidedly more feel-good: a recollection on an inspiring patient’s social history (original blog post here and story in the LA Times here. )

  1. A conversation worth having about inappropriate behavior, poor professional conduct that just can’t be good for patients or anyone else in the medical center environment.
