Byron Whyte MD, FAAP joins Clay and Grant to discuss the issue of race in the practice of medicine. Why are minorities still significantly under-represented in medicine and dentistry? Does racism exist in the medical school selection process? The discussion of race can be uncomfortable, but it's a conversation that needs to be held. Clay also discusses his SBM article about acupuncture for colic in infants. Dr Whyte is a practicing pediatrician in Urgent Care in Virginia. He obtained his undergraduate and medical degrees at Howard University and his pediatric residency at Dartmouth.
