Ep 32: Students at UNM discuss their pre-professional medical networking group

A group of students at the University of New Mexico has formed a special interest group that encourages networking among pre-professional health care students. The thinking is that forming networks and relationships now will help them to better treat their future patients.

The Integrative Medical Education Exchange has a board of directors consisting of a medical student, a pre-chiropractic student, two pharmacy students and a recently graduated chiropractor. The membership spans all types of health care professions. Dr. Brett Kinsler spoke with several of them on this episode of On The Other Hand.

Ep 16: Edzard Ernst, CAM Critic, on Chiropractic and Bias

Professor Edzard Ernst, MD, PhD, FRCP, FRCP holds the Laing Chair in Complementary Medicine at the Peninsula Medical School, University of Exeter and is the Editor-in-Chief of two medical journals. He has also been seen as a major public opponent of chiropractic and alternative medicine.  He has devoted most of his career to publishing articles that are critical of complementary and alternative medicine....an unbelievable number of papers.  Like 1500 or so.  He’s been especially critical of chiropractic and, in the opinion of many researchers, has glossed over important research and exaggerated results.  To me, what’s most interesting about Ernst is that he claims objectivity and lack of agenda.  This podcast asks some tough questions of Prof. Ernst.

John J. Triano, DC PhD is the dean of graduate education and research at Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College and is one of the most well-known and well-respected chiropractic researchers and clinicians.  He spoke with me about limited prescription authority for chiropractors and his views on the topic (hint: he's in favor of it), rational chiropractic practice (in favor of that too), and subluxation (he's in favor of getting over it).

This interview with Dr. Triano was conducted by Rochester chiropractor Brett L. Kinsler, DC.
