#MedTwitter has been discussing “Take Two Aspirin + Call Me By My Pronouns,” an op-ed claiming social justice is taking time from sci ed + decreasing the quality of #MedEd.

So here’s my take:

As always, I start threads with my POV: #LatinasInMedicine #DoubleDocs student in year 2 of #medschool. I have interests in both #MedEd + #HealthJustice. I am about to finish my term as diversity rep on our med student govt. I care a lot about advocacy.
Let’s take a moment to learn about the author: Stanley Goldfarb is a nephrologist, *former* assoc dean of curriculum at UPenn Med. He graduated from med school in 1969. Ffolks who studied at UPenn have brought up negative experiences with Dr. Goldfarb.

Next, pick a good bio photo. A professional headshot you’ve used in other places (e.g., university directory) is smart.

Because Twitter has paused verification, I see consistent photos across multiple channels as an unofficial way to confirm you are who you say you are.

OK #medtwitter #scitwitter #doubledocs #radonc and #newpi tweeps: I have been charged with discussing "Recruitment and Retention of Physician Scientists" in #radonc at a panel for @ASTRO_org #ASTRO20. What are we doing right? What could we improve?
DMs or public tweets welcomed! Would love to get a diverse cache of perspectives! Please spread the word! Apologies in advance if I missed some folks. I'm still getting the hang of this twitter thing.
