    What’s good everyone. This is a new series that is starting called: “Sh*t I wish I knew in residency.” Pretty simple concept, right?

What happens if you can’t doctor anymore; 3. How to look for a job. Truth be told, the “other stuff” determines if you’ll be working in your 70’s because you have to vs saving the world doing the stuff you really want to do.
    In this episode we’re discussing why you should be protecting yourself just in case you can’t doctor no more! That’s right, we talking about Disability Insurance with Pattern Insurance. Dustin Karas, Co-Founder of Pattern Insurance, jumps on to simplify the what and why behind Disability Insurance.

Invigorating and Inspiring

I stumbled upon Dr Darko and Dr Renee as I began exploring options to expand goals beyond just a clinical doc. I listened to an episode about them investing in real-estate and one of the guests they had on the show. Nii and Renee are hilarious, they bring on helpful guests and I appreciate learning things I never knew about. I would highly recommend for any physicians that want to get outside the box.

Great Energy

First time listener. Practicing physician. Happy to see you giving great advice and helping docs grow in ways we weren’t taught in medical school. Looking forward to more interesting and entertaining information.
