Death penalty competency – fostering open conversation | Clinical Correlation

Monday, September 21, 2020

Introducing Clinical Correlation, a new podcast drop from the Psychcast.

Renee Kohanski, MD, began producing observational segments for the Psychcast since its inception in April 2018. Clinical Correlation episodes will be published on Mondays twice per month.

In this first edition, Dr. Kohanski recalls a poignant moment during her training when her mentor and then director, Donald Morgan, MD (https://bit.ly/35PAqY6), reconsidered his opinion prior to testifying in a court of law based on a simple question from a trainee. For Dr. Kohanski, this moment emphasized the importance of honest and open conversations.
