For most physicians, talk of court, lawyers, or subpoenas brings on a rush of anxiety. The medical and legal worlds can overlap in many ways. In this five part series, we’ll cover everything from the basics, to being a percipient or expert witness, to the dreaded malpractice lawsuits. Joining us as Guest Host, is Dr. John Rose, Professor of Emergency Medicine at UC Davis.
This first episode is a sort of legal 101. We discuss the basics of the legal system and what what EM Physicians need to know.
