Physicians as Humans Podcast E03: Struggling with Depression

In Physicians as Humans, Podcast by Niresha Velmurugiah1 Comment

In the third episode of the Physicians as Humans project, I corresponded with a Canadian emergency physician who sent me her personal account of depression.  The result is this beautiful, thoughtful story that she has graciously allowed me to read for the podcast.

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].   If you are unfamiliar with the project, please read this post for more information on the origin of this podcast series. The CanadiEM podcast can be added to your podcast application from the iTunes store or by entering the podcast RSS feed. It can also be streamed or downloaded through the player above.

Thanks for listening and please refer your colleagues!
