    Women in Military Medicine: An interview with Erika Kappes, DO

    Many thanks to Erika Kappes, DO, also known as “Major Z,” for appearing on the show today. The daughter of a marine, Dr. Kappes enlisted in the Army right after college. She accepted the Health Professions Scholarship and did her medical school while in the Army. After her psychiatry residency at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, she was promoted to Captain and practiced psychiatry in the Army for four years at Fort Stewart, GA. After leaving the military just over a year ago, she practiced telemedicine and then transitioned to in-person private practice in Alexandria, VA.
    During our 30- minute interview, Dr. Kappes shared many considerations that influenced her career choices. Her observations and insights are valuable, particularly for young women considering a career in military medicine.

    Locum Tenens Agencies: An interview with Jarin Dana, President-Elect of NALTO

    Locum Tenens Agencies: An interview with Jarin Dana, President-Elect of NALTO

    I had the good fortune to interview Jarin Dana, President-Elect of the National Association of Locum Tenens Organizations (NALTO). Jarin is also the Chief Financial Officer of Fusion Health Care Staffing in Sandy, UT.
    Jarin and I discussed the current landscape of locum tenens. Due to a variety of market forces, opportunities for physicians and other locum tenens providers continue to grow. Currently, approximately 50,000 physicians take advantage of locum tenens assignments. 
    Jarin explained NALTO’s role as a voluntary membership organization for staffing agencies that sets high ethical standards and practices for the locum tenens industry. Established in 2001, NALTO is the only professional locum tenens association.
    I was delighted to learn that Jarin has read my locum tenens book, “The Locum Life: A Physician’s Guide to Locum Tenens,” and recommends it to his colleagues!

    To learn more about NALTO and its role in the locum tenens space, please join us for this 25-minute program.

    Wisdom on the Camino: An interview with Kathleen Donnelly Israel

    Wisdom on the Camino: An interview with Kathleen Donnelly Israel

    Many thanks to Kathleen Donnelly Israel for joining me on today’s program. Kathleen served as the caregiver for her husband Ron, who endured 17 years of Parkinson’s disease. She shares her experiences with the medical system, nontraditional medicine, and efforts as a caregiver coping with her husband’s relentless physical decline. Although Ron had always been physically active and a triathlete, he “embraced his disease” while she desperately tried to “cure” it.
    After her husband’s death, Kathleen walked the 500 miles of the Camino trail, which gave her time to reflect on her experience and inspiration to move forward with her life. She relates her journey in her new book, “Wisdom on the Camino: A Spiritual Journey Sharing Forgiveness and Possibilities to Inspire the Rest of Your Life.”

    How locum tenens rescued a trauma surgeon: An interview with Serene Shereef, MD

    How locum tenens rescued a trauma surgeon: An interview with Serene Shereef, MD

    Many thanks to Serene Shereef, MD, a trauma surgeon who achieved work/life balance by working locum tenens. After her residency, Dr. Shereef struggled with balancing three children, a husband, and the demanding life of a trauma surgeon. She tried academic medicine but was miserable. She quit and tried a community practice, but it was the same story. Finally, with the help of a couple of coaches and a reassessment of her life’s priorities, she succeeded in finding a part-time position that allows her to practice surgery while offering quality time for her family and other interests. She’s happier than she’s ever been and eager to share her advice with other physicians wrestling with work/life balance.
    Dr. Shereef has a podcast, “Mindfulness and Productivity Systems Podcast.” The title says it all! You can reach Dr. Shereef on her social media channels.

    Living the Warrior Code: an interview with Scott McDermott

    Living the Warrior Code: an interview with Scott McDermott

    Thanks to Scott McDermott for joining me on "The Art of Medicine with Dr. Andrew Wilner!" 
    Scott is an elite athlete, regularly competing in the Ultraman. This competition covers three days and makes a 26-mile marathon run look like a walk in the park. The Ultraman World Championships are held on the Big Island of Hawaii. The race includes a 6.2 mile ocean swim, 261.4 mile bike ride, and 52.4 mile run. What a test of human endurance! The prize? The thrill of competition, a sweaty tee-shirt, and a wet bathing suit!
    In 2015, Scott experienced every athlete's nightmare. His bike skidded in the rain, and he crashed. Three days later, he woke up in an intensive care unit with a severe traumatic brain injury requiring neurosurgery, a fractured shoulder, wrist, and a variety of other injuries. 
    After returning home, Scott struggled to run his previously successful 15,000-square-foot gym. Finally, the COVID pandemic dealt a death blow to his business.
    With the help of an amazingly supportive wife, friends, an extensive medical team, and three years of cognitive and physical rehabilitation, Scott recovered, started a new business and thrives as a fitness trainer and motivator. He has also returned to the Ultraman World Championships. Wow!
    Here's a link to the feature-length documentary film about his accident and recovery, "Living the Warrior Code," on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwANynO24eA
    Please listen as Scott shares his inspirational story during this 25-minute interview.

    Secrets of Medical Coaching: An interview with Heather Fork, MD

    Secrets of Medical Coaching: An interview with Heather Fork, MD

    Thanks to Heather Fork, MD, for joining me on "The Art of Medicine with Dr. Andrew Wilner!" 
    I first interviewed Heather about her coaching practice several years ago for Medscape.com, and she has valuable experience to share. Heather is a former dermatologist but discovered that private practice didn't align with her personality and long-term goals. 
    Dr. Fork became a physician career strategist and Master certified Coach 12 years ago. She has 2,500 hours of training and is accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF). Since then, she has helped hundreds of physicians address career challenges such as the "Imposter Syndrome," burnout, and even boredom after years in a successful practice. Heather discusses who needs a coach, how to find a coach, when someone might need a therapist in addition to a coach, and how much coaching might cost.
    Please join us for this engaging 25-minute interview! 
    You can listen to Heather's weekly podcast, "The Doctor's Crossing Carpe Diem Podcast," here: https://doctorscrossing.com/podcast-1
    You can contact Heather at her website: https://doctorscrossing.com, where you can also find many free self-help resources.
