My name is Meghan Jeffres and I am the host of Medical Rewrites where we rewrite movie scenes with evidence-based medicine. More importantly it is about redemption. On this podcast we will fix the medical plot points that keep us up and night staring at the ceiling asking – why didn’t the script writers just call me? This podcast for the clinicians that can’t help but lean over to their neighbor in the theater and whisper “That is wrong” during every medical scene. We know they don’t care, but we just can’t help it. I am an Associate Professor at the University of Colorado Skaggs School of Pharmacy on the Anschutz Medical Campus where I teach infectious diseases and clinical problem solving. I have been hospital-based internal medicine and infectious diseases pharmacist since I completed my ID residency in 2006. My research focuses are antibiotic adverse reactions, allergies, and active learning. My plan is to work my way through the list of movies, that I genuinely adore, but have medical plot points that fall short of best practices. For each movie we will identify medical issues, do a deep dive on the topic, and rewrite the scene or dialogue. I goal is to release episodes every 2 weeks. The topics covered with be 50/50 mix of ID and internal med topics. I will be bringing in experts to take us on their own deep dives and rewrites.If you have a movie that needs a rewrite. I have a Google form on the website where you can release your rage about medical plot points that are responsible for your grey hair. The Medical Rewrites podcast would not have been possible without the support of my bosses at CU – shout out to Ralph Altiere and Doug Fish. I am also standing on the shoulders of podcast giants that came before me and offered their support - Lauren Biehle, Stacy Volk, Jamie Wagner, Julie Justo, and Erin McCreary – you are all the absolute best.
