This season of “Beyond the White Coat” will offer even more content with new mini episodes featuring interviews with experts from the AAMC. These mini episodes, collectively called “Ask an Expert,” include questions crowdsourced from across social media and the AAMC Virtual Communities for AAMC staff about their field of expertise. If you’d like to hear your question answered in a future episode, follow @AAMCToday on X, formerly known as Twitter, and on Instagram or join the AAMC community at communities.aamc.org, and keep a look out for the ask!
Patrick Boyle is a senior staff writer for AAMCNews. He’s been a journalist for 50 years and writes about medical education, medical care, and medical research, with a focus on children and families.
On this week’s episode of “Ask an Expert,” Boyle joins us to share his story of when he fell in love with writing, his evolution from newspaper to nonprofit reporting, and the ongoing challenges of free speech on medical school campuses.
