We wanted to alert you to an editorial from National Review that addresses a study purporting the apparent desire of some medical school students for “trigger warnings.” The editorial points out examples of when doctors in various fields could find themselves needing to discuss sensitive and explains why doctors need to be capable of “acting as a source of strength for a patient who feels psychologically weak.”
We hope prospective medical school applicants are prepared to address this in their interviews and we equally hope that those who don’t feel like they can handle the practice of medicine without trigger warnings consider alternate career paths.
Best of luck with your applications!
Keep up with us on:
The idea that doctors may some day need trigger warnings is even more frightening than the gifts they receive from big pharma for prescribing opioids.
