ClassCast Podcast Episode 011 showcases a discussion with Ryan Orr, a technology consultant, public health enthusiast, former premed student, and the founder of Drop Dead Premed, a mentoring and support service for premed students considering academic and professional changes in lieu of medical school. A former student of our host, Ryan Patrick Tibbens, Ryan Patrick Orr (coincidence, no relation) reflects on his high school and college experiences, ways to improve school, premed, public health, bioethics, and influential reading.
One part of the discussion links public health to ethics and the famous Trolley Problem thought experiment. For listeners who are unfamiliar, we strongly recommend you both check the link above AND consider your own responses. Plus, the thought experiment goes better with visuals aids.
This episode offers great perspectives on the premed track, college transfers, finding a career, consulting, science, books, school, and much, much more! Please enjoy this wide-ranging discussion, and let us know what questions or topics you'd like us to address in the future!
