Welcome to Surviving Medicine, the podcast that takes you into the mind of the best and brightest premedical and medical students, residents and physicians discussing where Medical Education is today and the future of healthcare tomorrow.
Each week we bring you an inside look at how to survive medical education and how to thrive as a practicing physician balancing work, patients, family and friends.
My name is Frank Cusimano, your host, a third-year medical student and third year PhD student – with a passion for anything health, wellness, medical education, and healthcare related.
Today we are joined by a very special guest, Erin Addie. Erin is a current 4th year medical student in NYC, born and raised in Nova Scotia, Canada. Erin did undergrad in Canada and then did her first two years in medical school in the Caribbean. Erin and I share a common experience, last year she suffered a life-threatening accident while hiking and was in the hospital for a week straight with almost complete amnesia of the accident. Erin is a rising Instagram star and jokes that she is a professional student, fashionista, and teller of bad jokes. In this episode, we dive deep discussing how to get into medical school as a Canadian student, we talk about her tragic accident, how the recovery has been for her physically, mentally, and emotionally, and we discuss how she uses her experience when treating patients in the hospital. I really think you guys are going to love this one.
