White Coat Rebels follows idealistic medical students and iconoclastic doctors who battle the structural inequalities of America’s health care system, in which their physicians’ oath to “do no harm” is challenged by the insidious power of the global pharmaceutical industry.
Each medical school student recites the ancient Hippocratic Oath to “do no harm”–a ritual that reinforces the healing power of “the white coat.” And yet few medical students are prepared to face the insidious power of the pharma industry whose tentacles reach literally every aspect of their profession and influence medical decision-making in a way few realize. They confront Big Pharmas power head-on and in a David vs. Goliath-type struggle show that change is possible.
