Physicians as Humans Podcast E01: An Addiction that Almost Killed Me

In Mentorship, Physicians as Humans by Niresha Velmurugiah2 Comments

On behalf of the Physicians as Humans project, I’m thrilled to present the first episode of the series: An Addiction that Almost Killed Me. If you are unfamiliar with the project, please read this post for more information on the origin of this podcast series.

In this first episode I speak with a Canadian medical student about his personal battle with drug addiction during medical school. He candidly describes his experience and the powerful impact it has had on his future as a physician.

This is an ongoing project, so if you or anyone you know have a story about managing personal struggles while in medicine, please contact [email protected]. The CanadiEM podcast can be added to your podcast application from the iTunes store or by entering the podcast RSS feed. If you would prefer to download it, click here. It can also be streamed above.

Thanks for listening and please refer your colleagues!
