Use what you have. But. Resident? So no insurance. Hasn't passed boards anywhere. I'd go with her in a second, but lawyers might see it another way if the medical attention went south. And medical care is about lawyers mostly these days.

She's a real doctor; she just did not have her credentials with her. Unfortunately, the man who did have them was white, and a man.

If he had his credentials on him he was probably also more experienced, which is what they want.

The piece is truthful but misleading. They are very careful only to call her a doctor or an M.D., which she is after graduating medical school, but is not licensed to independently practice medicine. A "physician" is one granted a license to practice medicine, which she is not, after completing a residency, which she has not.

The article gives a passing mention to Henry Louis Gates Jr. being arrested. Yes, police officers were called to his residence because a neighbor saw a man breaking into his house. It was him, breaking into his own house because he was locked out. He was arrested for disorderly conduct (mouthing off to the cop and being belligerent). God I fucking hate the Washington Post.

The reporting on this is my biggest issue, that WaPo glosses right over the fact that this woman, as a physician-in-training, did not have a license to practice medicine without supervision. The piece was written seemingly only to stir up the race issue, with no mitigating factors or secondary witnesses being described - again, not journalism.

Definitely. It's like asking a paralegal to represent you in court for a murder trial. NOT qualified (and illegal).

From the Journal of Emergency Medical Services, Handling In-Flight Medical Emergencies, June 3, 2010

EMTs and paramedics who choose to volunteer in an in-flight emergency may be required to show identification to the cabin crew indicating their level of training at the time of the emergency. Air carriers may choose to refuse assistance if identification isn't provided.

Apparently, asking for credentials is standard procedure, not racism.

The standard procedure is racist.

Sounds like a hoax. Maybe she was asked for her credentials; It's extremely unlikely there was any racism going on; the Bezos Post is pushing a narrative.

The Washington Post is corrupt and should be archived in the OP. It doesn't deserve our support. Please keep this in mind for future posts.

Oh she needs to get over her blackness, she is just young.

Technically yes she is a MD, but she is still in her residency, so has not completed her training, and is not allowed to practice medicine on her own. She has yet to pass her certification exams. Even when she works she must be supervised by a attending physician.

Additionally she is an OB/GYN resident with little in the way of emergency training.

She should be glad she did not interfere, had something gone wrong she would have been destroyed by the legal fallout.

Flight attendant to black female doctor: ‘We’re looking for actual physicians’ - The Washington Post

'In multiple comments from the official Delta Facebook account, the company said the incident “does not reflect the Delta culture. '

'This time, Cross said, the flight crew asked whether there was a physician on board. '

'She got a response she wasn’t prepared for.“Oh no, sweetie, put [your] hand down,” Cross recalled the flight attendant saying. “We are looking for actual physicians or nurses or some type of medical personnel, we don’t have time to talk to you.”The reason behind the flight attendant’s apparent skepticism?'

'Cross, an obstetrician and gynecologist, said she immediately flagged down one of the crew members, offering to treat the man. '

'Cross described the experience on the flight in an Oct. 9 Facebook post that had been shared more than 34,000 times as of Thursday night. '
