Psilocybin assisted therapy, mental health, and how we doubled the size of our company
It’s been a very long time since I have jumped on the Medgeeks podcast. But, every year I share and reflect everything I have learned with the community...and this year is no different! This episode is heavily focused on mental health and the pandemic. Much of what I discuss today is based off my personal experience, which is what shaped the growth of our company. Today, I’ll be discussing: * The Pandemic * My experience with psilocybin * Why I started therapy and how it’s helped shape Medgeeks * How our company doubled in size and brought on many full time employees in a time when many businesses were laying people off. * The #1 mistake PAs and NPs make after graduation * The secret to being the absolute best clinician you can be * 4 main takeaways I learned in 2020 that changed my life It’s my hopes that I can do my small part to help squash the stigma behind mental health. After all, my fiance is a marriage and family therapist :). At the end of the episode, I ask to see if anyone is interested in discussing business and/or personal growth. If that’s you, just click the link below to sign up. If there’s enough interest, I'll hold a free virtual session, where we can work together to help you get ahead. I have nothing to sell. This is just my way of giving back: https://medgeeks.co/business-talk Talk soon! - Andrew p.s. The future podcast episodes will not be like this. We’ll continue to focus on evidence based medicine to help you master medicine. But, it’s my podcast and I wanted to share haha. Happy New Year!

Health Systems Science | Series Intro and Overview with Dr. Maya Hammoud
Welcome to the first episode of our Health Systems Science series! This episode is an overview of what Health Systems Science is and why it is important.  Today’s guest is Dr. Maya Hammoud. Maya is a Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Professor of Learning Health Sciences at the University of Michigan Medical School. She is the Associate Chair for E-Learning and Enabling Technologies, Chair of the Center for Education, and Clerkship Director for Obstetrics and Gynecology. She serves on the Medical School Executive Committee and is Assistant Director for Education, Global Reach at the Medical School. Dr. Hammoud currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics (APGO) as the Secretary-Treasurer and she is APGO’s President-Elect. Her research interests are in the field of medical education, as well as in women's health with a focus on cultural competence. She serves as a reviewer for many peer-reviewed journals and she is currently on the Editorial Board for the International Journal of Gynecology and Obstetrics. Questions and topics covered in this episode include: Why HSS is important and has become more important with COVID-19 Why students need to be taught HSS during medical school What is systems-based thinking How HSS affects practicing physicians With support from Elsevier, and produced in collaboration with the American Medical Association, the HSS series seeks to broaden students’ understanding of the nature of medicine, medical education, and what separates them from other human endeavors. Medicine is not a “pure science,” a kind of “applied biology.” Rather, it is fundamentally an art that uses science. As a discipline, Health Systems Science considers those ideas and concepts which are integral to medicine as a profession but don’t fall under the domain of the clinical or basic sciences. The National Board of Medical Examiners includes HSS topics in its USMLE Content Outline and even offers a dedicated Health Systems Science subject examination. Each episode of this series will include on-the-go learning with practice exam questions explained by expert guests.  This series is sponsored by Panacea Financial: Banking Built for Doctors, by Doctors. ITB and Panacea share a common goal which is to make med school better. Panacea Financial is designed to handle the unique situation of medical students. We hope you will check them out to see how they can make your life easier. Learn more about the series and view the content outline on the ITB website. https://insidetheboards.com/Health-Systems-Science/.

Mitral Stenosis
Mitral stenosis (MS) is narrowing of the mitral valve. In the normal cardiac cycle, the heart relaxes during diastole and allows blood to flow from the left atrium to the left ventricle through the open mitral valve. When the mitral valve is narrowed, blood flow becomes restricted (Figure 1). Excess volume and pressure build up in the left atrium, while forward flow to the left ventricle decreases. After listening to this AudioBrick, you should be able to: * Define mitral stenosis. * List and explain the common causes of mitral stenosis. * Describe the clinical presentation and diagnosis of mitral stenosis. * Describe the treatment of mitral stenosis. You can also check out the original brick from our Cardiovascular collection, which is available for free.
