This New Zealand Doctor starts youtube to tell the truth about medicine (and food)


Hey guys whats up It’s Jae here Today I’ve taken a huge step in my life
– I have finally decided to make this youtube channel because
of 3 reasons 1. To share my experience of getting to med
school and work as a doctor in New Zealand 2. To increase health literacy of New Zealand
viewers 3. Food reviews. I want to talk about med school in New Zealand.
The amount of information out there about how to get into med school is vast. But how
many of them are actually genuine and actually care about the student? Not many. In fact
– my mate Justin – Dr Justin he cared about this issue so much that he made an organisation
dedicated to giving students right info about med school – check out the link below if you
want to find out more. The other side to this is that throughout
medical school, I was too preoccupied and never really took the chance to properly systematically
reflect about my practice in an open way. Right now I am taking a 6month break from
regular hospital work – I’m locuming and studying at the moment. But when I get back
to hosptial and get back towards training to be a surgeon, I want to be able to do reflect
consistently – You guys will hold me accountable for this. I am not happy with health literacy of Kiwis.
What do I mean by that? Basically having enough knowledge to help your own health and if you
can’t help yourself, then knowing when and where to get help. Many of you especially if you are budding
doctors, there has been a recent rise in anti-vaccination. So much so that WHO has named anti vaxxers
as one of the top 10 threats to world health. Low vaccinations many not be impactful at
the micro scale but multiplied to a population – it can literally kills tens, hundreds and
more… You don’t need to look further than what is happening in Samoa. More than 60 people
have died from measles – The saffest thing is that it was all preventable Now we can play the blame game but I’m not
interested at the moment – let’s just focus on the solutions. Through this channel hopefully
we can increase awareness of certain health issues and lead to real benefits. I love food. We are going to do food reviews.
It might not be the healthiest foods but we will explain as we go on. Thats all for today mate! If you like what
I’ve got then please subscribe. This is my first video and if you have serious concerns
about the quality of this video – please comment below and be a critic on how I can do better. If you want to find out more about what I

Dr Justin – you can check out his site at jjtmed.com
