    Dr. Daniel Paull - Founder and CEO of Easy Orthopedics - The existential crisis of doctors

    Dr. Daniel Paull - Founder and CEO of Easy Orthopedics - The existential crisis of doctors

    Today, we are joined by Dr. Daniel Paull. Dr. Paull is an orthopedic surgeon, founder and CEO of Easy Orthopedics.
    A surgeon by training, and a medical field disruptor by passion and author of the book, So You got Into Medical School…Now What?
    I have been following his Linkedin posts for quite a while and I resonate deeply with his posts, that's why I brought him to the show today.   
    Are today's doctors softer than old-fashioned doctors? 
    We talk about the constant fears and doubts that surround us after residency and the widespread "Pseudo stability trap" that we, as physicians, still believe in. 
    We talk about our personal experience with an existential crisis and Dr. Paull tells us what helped him overcome his.

    Quotes: 
    "Look, when you're seeing a patient,there's an algorithmic ways to treat somebody, but you have to take into account their social, their economic, and their emotional situation. And that's where the kind of art of medicine comes in." - Dr. Daniel Paull 
    "I think that's where a lot of the disconnect is where someone says, I don't like practicing medicine. Really what they might be is they don't like practicing medicine the way they are practicing it now. There's a big disconnect from how you kind of learn what medicine maybe should be like in medical school to how it's actually carried out in residency afterwards" - Dr. Daniel Paull
    "I mean, nobody really forms a business because things are good. You form it because things aren't good. There's a problem either where you're working or there's some problem you're trying to solve or something's not going right." - Dr. Daniel Paull
    "To make it through medical training, you have to be so stubborn. Like, I thought I was one of the most stubborn people I knew. And then I went to med school. I'm like, oh, everybody's stubborn." - Dr. Daniel Paull
    "We need people out not only seeing patients, but we need people on the other side of things, developing technology, working with big business, fighting for physician rights and trying to make a better system, because the reason we're in this mess in the first place is because doctors decided not to care about business. - Dr. Rami
    "If you don't focus on the business part of your practice, somebody else will do it for you. And you probably won't like it" - Dr. Daniel Paull
    "When you go on your residency interview, take note of how happy the people are when you're interviewing. And if all of them are happy, it's probably good. If they're all miserable, don't go there because you're not going to be an outlier, you will be miserable too." - Dr. Daniel Paull

    Everything wrong with medicine. A follow up conversation with Dr. Aleah

    Everything wrong with medicine. A follow up conversation with Dr. Aleah

    Intro:
    Dr. Aleah and I dive deep into the difficulties, misconceptions and everything that we believe is wrong with medicine. 
    "None of us know how to market ourselves or find the right people because, you know,  we've been brainwashed. Thats just like, you are a clinician, thats what you are."
    Dr. Aleah shares some of the most common problems with our medical curriculum and the importance of have skills that complement your medical career. We have an honest conversation about the barriers that we face as doctors, why doctors should know about finances and how to make extra real money during medical residency. 
    "We already know this, that hospital systems make a lot of money off of residents and the care that they provide"  
    We talk about the insane and overwhelming medical residency journey and how to keep your sanity during the process. How to take calculated risks, and the danger of over self-sacrifice and not having boundaries in medicine. 
    Quotes: 
    "I'd rather watch the system burn, than see all my colleagues burn" - Dr. Rami
    "If you actually finish your medical degree and then don't do residency, you actually cant even volunteer to help people " - Dr. Rami
    "Boundaries are good but we cant put a boundary with patients" - Dr. Aleah
    "Boundaries tend to benefit both parties, maybe not initially, but in the long run they do" - Dr. AleahShow notes:

    The importance of business in medicine; 
    The emergence of the gig economy for clinicians; 
    The barriers that we face as doctors; 
    How to make extra real money during medical residency;
    How to be resilient
    The importance of boundaries in medicine.

Beyond Med.

Great podcast! I just listened to episode 39 with Dr. Laurie Santos and I can honestly say I really enjoyed listening to it. It helped me set the tone for my day and it also helped me identify the areas I need to work on to make sure I continue to live a happy life. I was able to relate to a lot of the topics Rami and Dr. Santos covered from stress in school/work and the whole social media conversation! Highly recommend everybody to listen and subscribe! Can’t wait to listen to future episodes.

Medical Education

I just listened to the episode with Dr. Ted O'Connell and it was very inspirational! Not only a practicing physician, but branching out to start MedEs companies like Exam Circle, InsideTheBoards, and authoring multiple books! How does he do it all?
