Have a Heart
24 Jan, 2010
You can hear a clip from this episode on our BEST OF SEASON ONE file, available as a free podcast download on iTunes.
In this episode, we were joined by Dr. Franklin Handel (left), a cardiologist in Dayton, Ohio. Dr. Handel discussed the changes he has seen in the field of cardiology during his 26 years of practice, while also offering insight regarding the future of the specialty. Dr. Handel also discussed the importance of humanism in medicine and shared stories from his own experiences caring for patients.
While live on the air, we learned that Dr. Handel was once the President of his medical school class, as a medical student at the University of Pennsylvania. This was especially fitting because of our second guest for this episode, TJ Hufford — the President of the first year class at the Boonshoft School of Medicine. TJ discussed medical student involvement in the community and shared experiences that highlight the importance of medical students “having a heart.”
