We sit down with Tania Jenkins (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill) about Doctor’s Orders (Columbia University Press), a book about occupational inequality in America’s medical profession. We talk about Medical Doctors and Osteopathic Doctors, the origins of this professional distinction, how this inequality plays out in doctors’ career trajectories, and whether these occupational distinctions lead to differences in quality of care. Hosts Joseph Cohen and Leslie Hinkson.
