A tribute to med student energy and creativity.

Check out RadioRounds, a weekly radio show produced by medical students at the Boonshoft School of Medicine at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio.

Broadcasting since April 2009, the show is now in its seventh ‘season’ and is heard on WYSO radio (an NPR affiliate) and can be downloaded free from iTunes.

I first heard the show when Dr. Michelle Au of the popular blog “The Underwear Drawer” (it’s where she used to keep her journal) was a featured guest in season six (episode 606).

The show’s producers feature guests that are experienced in topics like medical narrative (storytelling), global health, health policy, suffering, death and dying, organized medicine (like the AMA), health care reform, politics, and medical school admissions. To name a few.

They’ve interviewed guests both famous and not. Yet all RadioRounds interview subjects are working to broaden our understanding of health, wellness, and how to best deliver care whether in the U.S. or the developing world.

RadioRounds has also featured a wide array of medical bloggers, typically a few each season. Including this one. You can clink the link here to catch their interview with me (broadcast for the first time today). Among the questions I was asked was, “Why do you blog?”

I can’t remember exactly how I answered the question. Unlike writing, once an interview is in the can you can’t go back and change things around.

I’m eager to give it a listen.

Thanks to my interviewer (and the show’s creator) Avash Kalra.
