Minority Women Doctors – 622

Doctor Angie Curtis, MD, MPT fits into the Minority Women Doctors category but has a unique path.

Minority Female Doctors; Dr. Angie Curtis; black women; african american colleges

Her original plan was to be a doctor.

Obstacles arose and she chose Physical Therapy school.

Before she could get established as a PT she knew she needed to go after her dream of becoming a Sports Medicine Doctor.

Challenges facing Minority Women Doctors

Doctor Curtis did not present on becoming a doctor as an African American woman. But a previous conversation in the hallway sparked an interest in me to learn more and help grow to understand.

I know I have preset judgments and biases based on where and how I was raised.

I also know that I am responsible for my actions and choices. I can not blame anyone else for the way I view or treat others.

Have you judged Minority Women Doctors too soon?

Dr. Curtis has been overlooked and ignored because she is a black female, dressed like a doctor, carrying clipboard and stethoscope. The nurse in scrubs was a male so he was obviously more “doctorly”

She has not allowed this to make her bitter but continues to grow and improve patient care and open doors for the women behind her.

Do you know what is considered best practice and recommended by research?

As athletic trainers, we routinely see a variety of skin issues happening with our athletes.

Blisters: do you pop it or not?

Today on the podcast Dr. Nguyen relays to us the best practice in issues as common as blisters and as serious as tinea issues that may be resistant to topical antibiotics.

For example

At minute 2:10 on the podcast, Dr. Nguyen says she always recommends leaving the blister if possible.

Around 4 minutes on “Skin with Kathy Nguyen”, she discusses wound care specialist opinion on new skin growth and scarring.

What are truths and what are myths?

Through research and discussion with other wound care specialists, she helps us sift through what are considered old wives tales and gives us concrete reasons to refer a skin issue or lesion to a doctor.
