Med students Tyler Rainer and Matthew Trifan tell us a story

Med students Tyler Rainer and Matthew Trifan tell us a story

Med students don't treat patients until their third year in their program—they spend a lot of time in the classroom until that year. So it's no surprise that third- and fourth-year students have a lot of interesting stories from their first days on the front lines of medicine.

In this episode, Andy listens to two young storytellers: Tyler Rainer and Matthew Trifan, fourth-year med students at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University. Both share compelling stories from their Trauma Surgery rotations at Temple University Hospital, Philadelphia. 

They also talked with Andy about the pressures of medical school, why they've chosen to be doctors, and where they're headed next.
