Physician's Guide to Doctoring with Bradley B. Block, MD

This is a podcast that answers the question, "what should we have been learning while we were memorizing Kreb's cycle?" This is a practical guide for practicing physicians and other healthcare practitioners looking to improve in any and all aspects of our lives and practices. Physician and non-physician experts are interviewed on a wide range of topics to help us with personal and professional development.

Jennifer Kasten, MD, MSc, MSc is a practicing pediatric pathologist with degrees in medicine from the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, infectious disease epidemiology (CID) from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, a year’s postgraduate work in the mathematical modeling of infectious disease at Oxford University, and a master’s in the history of medicine and science, also from Oxford University. That’s a lot of school. Given her education, and pithy sense of humor, she created a Facebook page to clarify COVID-related issues, first for friends and family, and then some posts went viral and she has turned into a phenomenon. If you don’t follow her, you should.

This is part 2 of the episode with Jennifer Kasten, MD, MSc, MSc. Part 1 was what we’ve learned about COVID in the last year and this episode is all the SARS-CoV-2 vaccines. We discussed when we can expect full FDA approval, rather than emergency use and what that entails, how she arrived at the declaration (made during the episode) that she believes the vaccines will last 2 years, why she thinks the vaccines provide sterilizing immunity, potential pathophysiology of thrombosis after the J&J and AZ vaccines, how the mRNA vaccines work (apparently muscles are just for show – not immune responses), and an update on the pediatric vaccines.

Also, I am now part of a network. The Doctor Podcast Network, where all of the podcasts cater to a physician audience.

For instance, Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, AKA Bootstrap MD, Hosts the Physician Entrepreneurs Podcast. Check it out!
