The Future of Medicine

June 10, 2019

Dr. Eugene Kim will never forget the words of a woman with stage IV cancer that he met during medical school, “Remember my face,” the patient said, “when you have a tough day in the hospital because you have changed my life.” In the final podcast of the 2018-2019 season, Drs. Eugene and Mackenzi Kim tell us about being newly minted medical doctors and how tomorrow, they will begin the next phase of their clinical training as residents. “Having those moments of connection with patients where you know you made an impact on them, and they made an impact on you…” is what Mackenzi recalls as one of the reasons she went into medicine. Mackenzi adds, “I love science and I love people…the perfect marriage of the two”.  In this podcast, Eugene and Mackenzi share with us why the chose their particular specialties, tips for other clinicians working with residents, and some of the reasons we should all ask for a resident during our next medical visit. One of the reasons: it’s a two-for-one deal!
