Episode 036: Markets and Med Students with Dr. Beth Haynes
The Paradocs Podcast with Eric Larson
What is the difference between a first year medical student and a senior in college? A lot of debt and neither knows anything about medicine. Contrary to popular belief, medical students don't know the first thing about the health care system, how it is delivered in the United States, or what challenges face physicians in caring for their patients. So all of the popular opinions floating around in the general undergraduate student population are present upon their training. Unfortunately, much of their understanding lacks nuance or knowledge of the alternatives in the market or the fact that there even is a market. My guest, Dr. Beth Haynes is an emergency medicine and family medicine residency trained physician who is looking to change that problem as the medical director of the Benjamin Rush Institute. The Institute is committed to teaching medical students alternative ways of caring for patients, ethics, and practice models. She participates in debates arguing for market solutions against those arguing for single payer systems like Medicare for All. Dr. Haynes also hosts ethics workshops where she discusses the nature of rights. These delve into the essence of what a right really means and if someone can truly have a right to health care by forcing others to provide that care. In addition to those BRI activities, Dr. Haynes serves as a public speaker and health policy advocate with the Docs 4 Patient Care that we discussed with Dr. Lee Gross in Episode 034. Dr. Beth Haynes is the medical director of the Benjamin Rush Institute whose mission is to educate medical students about the role of the market in providing health services. show notes Benjamin Rush Institute - The Benjamin Rush Institute is the organization dedicated to introducing medical students to ways to preserve the patient-physician relationship. It provides scholarship for students to participate in lectures, debates, and talks to learn more about market alternatives to the current focus on large single payer delivery systems. @haynes_be: Twittering for Dr. Haynes Docs4PatientCare Foundation: Dr. Haynes is an executive board member for this group that represents physicians in national health care policy.
