Amazing stories

I’m a non-trad admitted DO from NJ. I start med school in my home state in a couple of months. Listening to these podcasts has been informative and helpful in allowing me to see the different fields that medicine has to offer. I have enjoyed listening to different stories of the day to day life of physicians and it has made me to reflect deeper on what kind of physician I might want to be.

Very Informative

As a non-trad trying to make decisions that will not only affect my life but the lives of my husband and children forever, this podcast has been so valuable as I weigh the pros and cons of each specialty! I love getting the insight and perspective into different specialties from physicians who are actually living and working in that lifestyle. Thank you for hosting!!

Enlightening

Very informative information from experts in the field. I loved session 6. She was so deep and philosophical! I love how all the DRs compliment your choice of questions, it paints a good picture of their lifestyle.
