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 30: Chiropractic Cultural Authority, Identity and the Importance for Unity

It's not news that chiropractors worldwide recognize the need for greater respect from the public, other health care professionals and various policymakers. What many people say is the missing key to solve this perceived inequity is our lack of general public trust which would permit our self-governance. When the public fully trusts a profession, then truth is what that profession says it is. The professional group defines itself and, without any fanfare or undue prodding, the public accepts this truth. That is the trust that marks cultural authority. Chiropractors have understood that this is a barrier for many years and many chiropractors have set out to build our cultural authority. In this episode, we speak with Dr. Michael Farrell, a chiropractor from the Buffalo, NY region on that subject.
