  • 02/11/16--11:53: Goal Keeper
  • The best defense is a good offense. David Hernandez ’16 MD’20 has played defense for intramural soccer all four of his years at Brown. But in the classroom, he quickly learned that if he didn’t go on the offensive, he would fall behind, and fast. A student in the Program in Liberal Medical Education (PLME), which admits high school seniors to [...]

  • An MD-PhD is part of a new era of cancer breakthroughs. Alpert Medical School can brag of many remarkable students and alumni in its short history, but Raghu Kalluri, PhD MD’09 was certainly the first to be a full professor at Harvard Medical School while simultaneously studying medicine at Brown. Born in St. Louis, Kalluri grew up in India and [...]

    By Christopher Moriates, MD; Vineet Arora, MD, MPP; and Neel Shah, MPP ’04 MD’09 McGraw Hill Education, 2015, $55 “Some physicians and ethicists may warn that the separation of medical care and costs is an important, necessary aspect of the medical profession, ensuring a firewall between clinicians’ medical decisions and their financial incentives. However, this separation is actually relatively new to the profession [...]

  • 02/11/16--11:53: The First 15
  • How are our young alumni faring in their careers? At Alpert Medical School, the annual Ceremony of Commitment to Medicine, where students receive their first white coat, concludes with a class photo. The students smile up at the camera, all clad in their pristine, short coats. Though each has a different reason for being there, though each might wonder if she or he really belongs [...]

  • 02/11/16--11:53: That Was Then, This Is Now
  • Where are these women surgeons today? In 1992, the predecessor of this magazine, Signs & Symptoms, published a cover story about women medical students and residents going into surgery. Three of the women, pictured below, represented three-fourths of the chief surgical residents at Brown that year; Naji Baddoura, MD RES’92 was the lone male. At the time, about 8 percent of general [...]

  • 05/19/16--14:13: Ideas into Action
  • An alumna is changing the world, one mother at a time. You might call Tara Shirazian ’99 MD’03’s office in midtown Manhattan a little cluttered. From wall to ceiling are boxes of birth kits, prenatal vitamins, and medical supplies donated to Saving Mothers, the nonprofit she cofounded in 2009 to help prevent women in the developing world from dying in [...]

  • 05/19/16--14:13: It’s Humanly Possible
  • A health center cares for its at-risk community by linking health and human services. Myechia Minter-Jordan, MBA ’94 MD’98 was practicing at The Dimock Center in Roxbury, MA, when one of her long-time patients admitted that she had begun drinking heavily. She felt she couldn’t leave her dangerously abusive relationship for fear of ending up on the streets. With [...]

  • 05/19/16--14:13: Be Our Guest
  • How can we provide a good home for our microbiomes, so they’ll keep us healthy? Fecal transplants may be one of the more surprising health news sensations in recent years. The process of transferring small amounts of one person’s stool to another’s gastrointestinal tract to treat a dangerous bacterial disease just seems too icky to make it out of the pages [...]

  • Have duty hour restrictions improved the resident experience? Click. I hit my alarm and roll out of bed. It’s dark, very dark. What day is it? Doesn’t matter. Throw my clothes on, grab my lunch from the fridge, and make my way to the car. As I drive to work, a pink sky bleeds into gray clouds. Is it rising [...]

  • 10/07/16--11:06: Mega Milestone
  • There was lots to celebrate at the first-ever emergency medicine reunion. Feeling lost, anxious, clueless—just utterly, glaringly, brand new—every physician has been there on the first day of residency. But what’s it like if it’s the residency program’s first day too? “It certainly was an experience like no other,” says Selim Suner ’86 ScM’87 MD’92 [...]

  • 10/18/16--13:39: Baby Steps
  • As more and more infants are born dependent on opioids, hospitals and researchers are working together to chart the best path to recovery. Caitlyn O’Brien has been here before. That doesn’t make it any easier. It’s mid-August, and the slim 29-year-old is eight months pregnant with her third child, and first son. She shifts uncomfortably [...]

  • 10/18/16--13:39: Think Big
  • In elephants’ cancer-resistant genes, an oncologist sees new hope for people. A few years ago pediatric oncologist Joshua Schiffman ’96 MD’00 learned an astonishing fact. Elephants have an extraordinarily low rate of cancer, despite their enormous size and long lifespan.

  • 10/18/16--13:39: No Apologies
  • To succeed in a male-dominated field, be yourself. I carry a pink briefcase. Not a subtle pink, but a vivid, intense, practically bubble-gum pink. I set it down each morning among the ubiquitous black backpacks, drab brown briefcases, and camouflage baseball hats. I finish rounds and attend morning lecture, where the speaker invariably scans the [...]

  • 10/31/16--13:46: Catch Them If You Can
  • Chinese medical education is rising, rapidly but unevenly, from Cultural Revolution rubble. For scores of years after the first medical school opened in China in 1886, the country progressed in building a medical education system for its fast-growing population. Then 50 years ago, it not only came to a screeching halt, but to a full [...]
