Whether you're fixing a printer or overhaul an entire system, there is no project too big or too small to either learn from or make impact with. Empathy and understanding of how everyone in the hospital works is crucial and James talks about the value of spending time shadowing and learning from the management side of the hospital to help you make impact.

    Jumping off hospital rooftops, hanging themselves in janitorial closets, overdosing on drugs—they’re A students and their suicides are often like well-planned school projects. Doctors are our healers, yet they have the highest rate of suicide among any profession. Medical students and families of physicians touched by suicide come out of the shadows to expose this silent epidemic and the truth about a sick healthcare system that not only drives our brilliant young doctors to take their own lives but puts patients lives at risk too.

Health Innovation at it's BEST

A very informative podcast with innovations that matter. Dr. James Solmauroo goes more in-depth than many other Health Tech podcasts. It's very informative and should be listened by all interested in bringing forward innovation in their startup or company.
