The Prudent Plastic Surgeon
In this post, Dr. Frey picks apart the recently released AAMC survey of graduating medical students. He boils the findings down to 33 statistics about medical school debt. Some of this I already knew, like the average medical school debt of around $200,000. (I escaped med school with $200k of debt, but it ballooned to $300k by the time I finished residency.)
But other statistics were new and interesting, like the ones that linked higher familial wealth with lower medical school debt for their kids. (Not surprising, but it was the first time I’ve seen statistics on the topic).

The Darwinian Doctor
In this post, I talk with my friend Dr. Manju Dawkins, who founded the company Thimble. This is a company that exists to end needle pain. I discuss how I have a love/hate relationship with needles that is dependent on whether the needles are pointed in my direction or not. We go through the products available right now and what’s under development. I just love physician entrepreneurs!
