Who trains surgeons what medications to prescribe?
We don't often think about surgeons as being significant prescribers of medications, but they actually prescribe a lot of medications and help patients manage their medications, as they prepare for and recover from a surgical procedure. And in today's world of team based care, the surgeon is actively engaged in patient care planning. So how does a surgeon learn what medications to prescribe?
Our special guest on this episode is Dr. Andrew Smedley, a PGY2 general surgery resident at the UAMS Medical Center in Little Rock, Arkansas.
