Physicians as Humans Podcast E02: An Illness Close to Home

In Physicians as Humans, Podcast by Niresha VelmurugiahLeave a Comment

In the second episode of the Physicians as Humans project, I speak with Dr. Rob Rogers (@EM_Educator), a leading educator in emergency medicine and director of The Teaching Course. He shares his experiences of dealing with a devastating illness in his own family and the effect it had on his career as an emergency physician.
