“I’m a firm believer in this, things happen in your life for a reason. You may not understand what the reason is when they’re happening, but if you keep an open mind, eventually, hopefully, you’re gonna see why those things happen.”
- Dr. George Naum aka Dr. Jeep, MD and Physician Marriage Coach
Dr. Jen Barna is pleased to welcome back Physician Marriage Coaches Dr. Jeep and Vanessa Naum to DocWorking: The Whole Physician Podcast. Previously featured in DocWorking Episode 145: “Why Physician Marriages Have Challenges with Dr. Jeep and Vanessa Naum,” today’s episode is about grit. This episode features Dr. Jeep’s own story of how he overcame multiple obstacles to become a physician. In this conversation, Dr. Jeep details his prolonged journey to becoming a successful MD after initially being rejected from medical school, then leaving the only place he had ever known to study abroad in Grenada, only to have his studies interrupted later with a subsequent military invasion and rescue, after which, upon eventually landing a place in a US medical school, he had to start all over. Dr. Jeep’s story serves as an inspiration to aspiring physicians on mindset during failure, adversity, and times of perseverance. He says it was all worth it, and made him a better physician in the long run. We hope you enjoy this personal story from one of our favorite guests.
