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

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;

My Journey Through Medicine, Why I Left Residency, The Good, The Bad & The Ugly.
A few months ago my good friend Aleah Thompson, MD recorded a podcast episode with me to help me talk about my story. After the recording I got cold feet and decided I didn't want to share something so personal with the world. Partly, because I felt insecure about my story and partly because I didn't know how people would react to it. I believe I have reached a point where I am comfortable enough with my story and path that I'm okay with releasing it. Also, I really just want to start conversation about some really important topics. Topics that are being swept under the rug because of taboo. There a topics of discussion in this recording that are particularly important because they of the harm that it causes many medical students and residents. I know, because I was one of those people who was badly hurt. And I know, I'm not the only one.
It's been almost a year since I left residency. My life has taken quite a turn and i've been pretty lucky with how things have turned out. Still, there's a lot to unpack about my story and i thought some transparency might help some people. My story is just my story. I shared as much as i felt comfortable sharing in hopes that it can start a conversation amongst our community or maybe help other people contemplating similar decisions and to feel less shame or fear.

Love this podcast
Love the diversity of this podcast. Dr. Rami’s personality brings out the best in the guests and brings a great energy.
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.
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?
