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

    • Medicine

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.
