REPORTER: Is it an impropriety for you to come out and sort of spin the report before people are able to read it? BARR: No. *walks away*

And good point, this is likely modeled by attendings: I just know how I view women’s reproductive organs, which is as continuous with the rest of the body.

(There are, of course, many times when a patient may need a pause b4 a pelvic exam. If they need pain meds. Or have had past trauma and need support to receive the exam. Or don’t have enough rapport with the provider to allow it.)

Sometimes it’s because they’re waiting for a gyn bed/set up or chaperone, but it always makes me feel like we’ve artificially mentally detached the female reproductive organs from the rest of the body and put it in a different category.

Occasionally residents do this thing where they see a female patient with lower abdominal pain, get the HPI and exam *except* the pelvic exam, come out and present the patient, and then make a plan that includes β€œdo a pelvic exam.” πŸ€”

And then I come to the point where I realize the whole thing needs to be torn down and started over but that seems hopeless so I eat chocolate and go to bed.

I know. I get in mental circles where I’m like, we need to change the evaluators... oh yeah and the framework for evaluation... and oh yeah all the things that go into that overall evaluation, like the tests, letters, and access to mentors...

... in isolation because that is a meaningless check box, for the reasons you enumerate.

I agree about the concordant care at the patient level. At the admissions level, we need to bring in a workforce that will allow the match to happen. I’ve been calling that diversity, but perhaps there is a better term. In general, in my talks I don’t use the word diversity ...

A few key points: 1. Stop blaming women for their own deaths. It's systemic, structural risks, not individual ones, that put populations at risk. 2. Progress is slow and uneven, and it could be better if we focused on toppling structural racism and anti-oppression policy.
