Episode 59 - On The Way To Becoming A Pediatric Rheumatologist
Dr. Molly Dushnicky brings her JIA and physician perspective to this week’s episode on Take a Pain Check. In this episode, Dr. Molly discusses the story of her JIA diagnosis at the age of two with approximately 45+ impacted joints. She faced barriers of access to care in her hometown Thunder Bay in Northern Ontario as there was no pediatric rheumatologist then and even now. She talks about how she had to be flown down to The Hospital of SickKids in Toronto and CHEO in Ottawa to be treated. Dr. Molly is a fighter who did not let the disease stop her from being active. She is passionate about soccer, curling and rock climbing and learned different strategies to overcome her disability. Dr. Molly discusses her advocacy through the challenges as well as accommodations at each stage of her life with her diseases from elementary to high school, and from university to medical school. She also provides insight to her residency and fellowship programs. Lastly, Dr. Molly shares her path to her career in pediatric rheumatology and how her passion drew her to what she loves to do today.
