  • This Week in Health: Ethics - From Paula Deen to Cheating

    28/01/2012 Duração: 31min

    This Week in Health focuses on ethics: Paula Deen announced she has diabetes -- and apparently has hidden the disease from fans for at least three years. Now rather than getting sympathy, she's getting slammed for keeping her Type 2 disease secret while she has continued to promote butter and calorie rich food. This is the teaser in today's episode dealing with the issue of alleged cheating by radiology residents as they prepared for their board certification. It was released this week that these graduate medical residents were using "recalled test questions" in order to pass their board examination. Today on This Week in Health, Dr. Dan McCoy is joined by our resident attorney and legal expert Terry Jacobson as they debate these and other topics.

  • Doctor in the House: interview with Michael Burgess, MD

    01/05/2011 Duração: 31min

    When Dr. Michael Burgess gave up delivering babies in favor of kissing them, most physicians thought he was crazy. After reliving the September 11th World Trade Center nightmare in his head for weeks, the successful obstetrician decided to run for Congress in his Republican district of North Texas against the well-funded and well-named son of then Majority Leader Dick Armey. Not only did Burgess win, but he has quickly become the thought leader of American medicine in the United States Congress. In his new best-selling book, Congressman Dr. Burgess retells the story of his first years in the House of Representatives where another nightmare unfolded: the Democratic creation of Obamacare. His work is entitled "Doctor In The House" and it contains the prescription necessary to heal the ills of American health care. In this blog we engage in a spirited discussion with Dr. Burgess. Let us know what you think.
