NexGenMed: The podcast by med students for med students on free market healthcare
Episodes #10 – #19
Episode #19: Marni Jameson Carey, Executive Director, Association of Independent Doctors (AID)
The Association of Independent Doctors gives physicians in private medical practices a voice in the face of encroaching government regulation and medical consolidation. As hospitals become increasingly monopolistic and enticing to new doctors entering the field, studies show without fail that such consolidation reduces transparency, quality of care and the direct time a patient spends with a doctor, while increasing costs and inefficiencies.
Episode #18: Jay Kempton, co-founder of the Free Market Medical Association (FMMA) Understanding the nature of buyers and sellers of goods or services, including healthcare, can help put patients and doctors back in the driver’s seat of any healthcare transaction, eliminate false incentives and simplify the entire healthcare insurance process.
Episode #17: Beth Haynes, MD, BRI Medical Director
“What about the poor?”
Dr. Haynes discusses fundamental issues in healthcare policy underlying questions such as “What about the poor?” Is the overall goal to drive more and more people into government dependence, or to help people thrive independently, making the best healthcare decisions for themselves in a free market?
Episode #16: Danny McCorry, MD, BRI-Georgetownchapter founder and past president talks about how he discovered BRI and leveraged his interest in free market healthcare policy and medicine into a prestigious fellowship. His Heritage Foundation white paper on Direct Primary Care was influential in passing healthcare legislation on a state level, and continues to influence policy discussions across the country.
Episode #15: “Figure out what’s good medicine & good healthcare, then design your system for that purpose”, says Jim Eischen, JD, of the American Academy of Private Physicians. Eischen compares Direct Primary Care, Concierge Care & Connected Care: What distinguishes them, and which might be best for your future medical practice?

Episode #12: Jordan Halevy, American medical student studying abroad at Sackler Medical School, Tel Aviv University, discusses Israeli healthcare policy, and how historical political constructs have influenced healthcare, not only in Israel, but also in the US.
