Hosted by Dr. Tarun Soni, PGY1 Family Medicine, UBC, Canada. This is a podcast to showcase healthcare professionals and learn more about them as people, such as why they went into medicine, what they enjoy the most about it, and what challenges they face. We will also be talking about their thoughts on current events which may or may not be controversial. The goal is to talk as freely as we can be and hopefully, through this process we will all learn something new about medicine and the humans behind it.

    Dr. William Mak and Dr. David Deng: Conversations with family medicine residents.

    Dr. William Mak and Dr. David Deng: Conversations with family medicine residents.

    Interesting conversations with Dr. William Mak and Dr. David Deng, both family medicine second-year residents (PGY2) from the University of British Columbia.
    In this episode, we discuss their backgrounds, their hobbies/interests, and how they got involved in leadership roles. We also discuss the pros and cons of rural vs urban sites pertaining to family medicine residency. I had a great time talking to these two while learning a lot about medicine and the people behind it. I think medical students who are planning to apply for Carms next year will find this very helpful.

    Dr. Indy Sahota: Conversations with an Emerg Doc!

    Dr. Indy Sahota: Conversations with an Emerg Doc!

    So today, I have with me Dr. Indy Sahota, MD MSc CCFP(EM), staff emergency physician at Sinai Health System and Scarborough Health Network in Toronto and ICU clinical associate at Surrey Memorial Hospital. He completed his residency from the University of British Columbia.

    Some of the things we discuss are:
    Why he chose emergency medicine after finishing family medicine. We discuss his NGO called A Thousand Metres Above (ATMA) which supports healthcare initiatives in the Himalayas. How travelling changed him and how it can help humanize us, thus making us better physicians. How to normalize and learn from your own and other's mistakes. We briefly discuss the COVID situation in Canada and the rest of the world. We also discuss the differences between flu, SARS, MERS and COVID, and how this is much more threatening than all of them. How does he keep his sanity during these times?
    And finally, we touch on his upcoming podcast that he is planning to make on race and how opening conversations about it can make a huge difference in all our lives.

    Thank you for listening. I hope you enjoyed the show.

    Dr. Anish Shouan: Conversations with a Psychiatrist.

    Dr. Anish Shouan: Conversations with a Psychiatrist.

    In this episode, I had a very fascinating interview with Dr. Anish Shouan, who is a Psychiatry Senior Resident in PGI Chandigarh, one of the biggest tertiary hospitals in India. He is also one of my closest friends and an inspiration for me, as I have seen him emerging from a small-town boy to a big doctor in one of the biggest hospitals in India. We talk about the mental health disease burden in India, especially during these COVID crises times and how we can all overcome these challenging times both physically and mentally.
    We also discuss his background and the challenges he overcame to become who he is today and finally how he himself keeps mentally fit during these times.
