    UMHS introduces a new podcast called Dextrocardia, hosted by current second-year UMHS medical student Nihal Satyadev.


    Dextrocardia features interviews with fellow medical students, medical school faculty, and medical practitioners on everything from how to succeed in medical school, to fighting racial inequality in medicine and how medical students are working in the Black Lives Matter movement.

    What’s the story behind the podcast’s name?

    “Dextrocardia is a medical term for when your heart is the other way around," said podcast co-creator and host Nihal Satyadev. Caribbean medical schools have many misconceptions, but this podcast might just help you look at things from the other way around.”

    Episode 1 debuts Monday, August 31, 2020, featuring an interview with UMHS student Stephanie Vang. Ms. Vang discusses working as a teaching assistant (TA) for anatomy and what it takes to get an “A” in her class. Anatomy is a standard course taught in the Basic Science portion of medical school.

    Following the Monday, August 31st launch, episodes will subsequently be released every other week on Tuesdays. Dextrocardia will be available on Apple Podcast, Google Podcast, Spotify and Soundcloud.
