Emergency Medicine
It makes for heartstopping TV drama: the ambulance screeching through dark streets, the patient arriving at the ER and being whisked inside under the frenzied but sure hands of doctors and nurses. In the real world, a trip to the ER is often less enthralling and can entail long wait times and lots of folks with non-urgent runny noses. Though the emergency medical system strives to be a well-oiled machine, underfunding and overcrowding can lead to mistakes & inefficiency. Join us on Friday when we’ll talk about the unique challenges of emergency medicine, and how providers overcome them. Photo by Joel Neild.

I’ve tried to listen to the show online, but the link is dead. Is there any way I can listen?
