Dr. Beth Haynes, BRI executive director, delivered a talk at ATLAS Summit 2016 @ Freedom Fest: Engaging Our Future Physicians.
It is important that we undertake the task of engaging our future physicians. What are they learning about health policy? Given the state of higher education today, it’s no surprise that health policy instruction at medical schools is government-centric. But what is surprising is how little formal policy instruction students receive, which presents a great opportunity to interject the voice of reason into the conversation. Benjamin Rush Institute is doing exactly that. In just the fall semester of 2016, we reached 1300 medical student5s. Come hear how we are presenting the ideas of individual rights and limited government in a way that even liberal medical students are wiling to consider these alternatives.
