Forty-five (45) students joined us for MCW’s BRI/AMA joint Journal Club’s “Monthly Meeting of the Minds.” This month’s theme was “The Basics of Healthcare Finances Every Doctor Should Know.”
During February’s BRI/AMA Journal Club lunch talk we tailored our presentation specifically for an area many medical students don’t learn about. While medical students learn the ins and outs of scientific medicine, they are given little to no education on the financial aspects involved with medicine. Therefore, BRI at MCW decided to give a “crash course” presentation outlining all of the various payment options and plans in the American healthcare system today. Lunch was provided to those who attended.
This event was successful compared to our previous journal club talks. Joel Lange, 2016-2017 BRI Journal Club Chair, was very informative and engaging, and students were active and participating in lively discussions.
