S4 E1: Inviting Medicine In: Let’s Talk Queerness in Medicine (OUTREACH x MEDamorphosis)
In this episode, Chris (he/him) and Celine (she/her), as former co-leads of UBC Medicine’s 2SLGBTQ+ Mentorship Group, talk with Dr. Eva Moore (she/they), an Adolescent Medicine Paediatrician at BC Children’s Hospital, about navigating queer identity in medicine and how we can make medicine more inclusive, and maybe a little more loud, proud and rainbow-coloured. Dr. Moore candidly shares their journey both professionally and personally, from coming out (or perhaps “inviting in”) to starting a family, and what it has meant to be “out” throughout her life and career. We discuss the power of mentorship and representation outside of and within medicine, especially for queer trainees, and while we acknowledge the progress that has been made in society and in medicine, we recognize the ongoing harms of homophobia and transphobia that exist to this day. This podcast aims to add to the conversation that we hope will continue to shift the culture in medicine, to one that not only tolerates queerness, but which actively and openly celebrates it.Guest: Dr. Eva Moore, Adolescent Medicine Paediatrician at BC Children’s Hospital, Clinical Associate Professor and Program Director of the Adolescent Medicine Subspecialty Residency and Clinical Fellowship Training Program at UBC.Hosted and Edited by: Chris Kobylka-Pang and Celine McCaughran-Contreras, recent graduates of the UBC MD 2022 Class.Resources:To learn more about the OUTreach Mentorship initiative, visit https://mdprogram.med.ubc.ca/student-affairs/mentorship/outreach-2slgbtqia-identified-in-medicine/UBC 2SLGBTQ+ in Medicine Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ubcqueermedicine/Canadian Queer Medical Students Association Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/cqmsa/Recorded on the ancestral, traditional and unceded territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-waututh) Nations.
