Distinguished professor at Tufts University & former editor in chief of the NEJM
Dr. Kassirer (@jpkassirer) paid a visit as part of the annual Dr. Noble Wiley Jones Lectureship. He gave an excellent grand rounds, entitled "Lessons from my 60 year Quirky Career", full of excellent advice for our housestaff and faculty "The young and the old" (in his words).
Residents were then treated to a lunchtime Q&A panel between him and our very own Dr. Vinay Prasad (@VinayPrasadMD), where they touched on a number of topics, including gun control, challenging dogma, conflicts of interest, the evolution of diagnostic reasoning, and how to use your role as a physician to be an advocate.
Finally, he participated in Diagnostic Rounds led by Dr. Peter Sullivan, before setting off to visit our beautiful Oregon coast!
