    “Primary Care Dreams"

    Jamie Katuna and Kyle Cowper

    "On a Mission"

    Bill Dabbs, MD, Katherine Dabbs, MD, Ryan Dougherty, MD, and Meghan Dougherty, MD, put a carpool karaoke twist on the AFP Podcast theme song.

    "Health Is Primary"

    Mehul Sheth, MD, FAAFP, is a family physician in Kenner, La., and a faculty member with Ochsner Health System and the University of Queensland/Ochsner Clinical School, New Orleans, La.

    “Health Is Primary”

    In a world where health is failing
    And diseases are prevailing
    Depressing health news headlines abound

    We’re the family physicians
    Committed to the mission
    Of keeping you and your loved ones around

    So while you’re on your rotation
    And getting your education
    On what it is we do everyday

    May I impart on you some words,
    Be they silly or absurd,
    That may help you out in some tiny way

    You better learn your bread and butter
    ‘Cause it’s not all cookie cutter
    Read up on all the common things

    Hypertension, diabetes
    You know you gotta know these
    Joint pain, rashes, bites, and stings

    From Pink puffers and blue bloaters
    To “My urine has this odor”
    Get used to quickly switching gears

    Learn your Pathophysiology,
    Anatomy, Pharmacology
    The more you know, the less you will fear

    We see heart disease to allergies
    They say good health is primary
    We don’t discriminate age, sex, or weight
    We take care of the whole family

    Doc I’m just so tired
    If I don’t get well I’m fired
    Get good at working up fatigue

    Lots of sleep and mood disorders
    And the occasional goiter
    Or anemia from a GI bleed

    You’ll see many kinds of patients
    And you’ll need to have some patience
    To sort through all the gritty details

    They may have a lot to bring in
    Enough to make your head spin
    If it’s hard for you than think how they feel

    So be your patient’s advocate
    It’s a good deed that they won’t forget
    And if you want to arrange some serious change
    The frontline is where you better get

    So as you start your new adventure
    Stay engaged and invested
    No matter if you start with FP

    Or surgery, derm, or Ob-gyn
    The lessons learned here you will find
    Will help in any specialty

    Make connections with your patients
    Prevention, immunizations
    We do comprehensive healthcare daily

    So before you call the specialist
    You know you can totally handle this
    Because good health is Primary

    Because good health is Primary!
