May 20, Margaret Cary, Jack Penner and JP Mikhaie
Burnout is one of the biggest problems physicians face today. Addressing it early through coaching in medical school gives physicians the tools they need to maintain balance and meaning in their personal and professional lives. By fostering relationships between students and coaches, we are changing the conversation so students feel uplifted and empowered rather than emotionally exhausted and detached.

A lot of Americans think they should be able to make an appointment with a specialist on their own. This “system” often doesn’t work because of the way medical specialties are divided up; you need to know the diagnosis before knowing what specialist to see. The referral from a primary care provider is not an unnecessary roadblock, but an essential step to getting proper care.

May 15, Niko Lehman-White and Saeed Aminzadeh
Every year, approximately a quarter of the US population switches out of their health plan, increasing costs, destabilizing care continuity and holding back the potential of value-based care. It prevents us from making the long-term investments we desperately need. But now that the value-based movement has led to a refocusing on social determinants of health, incentives are aligned to address this issue.
