Was interested in this NPR article, which had this:
Millennial physicians like Ho are taking over hospital wards and doctors' offices, and they're bringing new ideas about life-work balance and new technologies.
One time, a patient asked Ho if it was OK if he recorded her performing a minor surgical procedure.
"He Instagram-videoed the entire procedure," she says. "It's not that a senior physician couldn't do it — I think that they might not have the comfort level."
She means comfort with technology. Millennial doctors want offices that are high-tech. Many have never worked with paper charts and they don't read dusty medical journals — they look at them online.
"We absolutely consult Wikipedia, not the library to find the most up-to-date medical research," she explains.
As you might imagine, that last line became one of those typical arguments about Wikipedia as the font of all human knowledge versus Wikipedia as Satan's ape. But I'm sure that the folks here are going to bring a lot more nuance to this. So prove me wrong...
