    Description:

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I could not be more excited to share my conversation with Dr. Tim Lemaire a full spectrum family medicine physician in Nome, Alaska. Dr. Lemaire lives and practices in a remote village in the Norton Sound Inlet adjacent to the Bering Strait across from Russia. Tim practices bush medicine, all-encompassing including obstetrics, pediatrics, emergency medicine, family medicine, internal medicine, geriatrics, and palliative care. He covers 15 villages in the surrounding area only accessible by snowmobile and plane. And just when you thought our guest couldn’t get more interesting, Tim’s story before medical school is not one you would expect. Tim grew up with a dream to be a rock star in a rock and roll band, playing and touring in college. He went on to be a foster father to countless of children and work his way up the corporate ladder at Starbucks before taking the plunge to go to medical school. In the interim Tim worked for Amazon in one of their distribution centers and as a Phlebotomist at a local hospital. He truly was a non-traditional applicant. Tim is an avid ultrarunner and best known by his friends and family as a leader, and manager, and the definition of selfless service. In medical school, Tim was the first vice chair for the Council of Osteopathic Student Government Presidents and was named DO student of the year representing all osteopathic medical students in 2016.

    In this conversation we dive deep discussing why he chose Alaska as is home, how he uses his pre-medical work experiences for patient care, what the typical day and week is like for an Alaskan bush medicine physician, what it is like practicing in a remote village and so much more. This conversation is everything grit, community, selfless service, and humility.

    080: Blending Art and Medicine – Dr. Mike Natter MD

    Dr. Mike Natter MD

    Internal Medicine & Graphic Medicine

    Instagram |  Twitter  |  Art Work

    Description:

    Our most requested guest since we launched the podcast, and we promise, he does not disappoint! Dr. Natter’s message and compassion bleeds through with everything he does. Now, think back to when you were a kid. A kid when it was normal to draw, color, paint, sculpt; a practice almost all of us did whether it was with our parents/siblings at home or with our teachers in grade school. As we age, most of us stop drawing, but not our guest today. No, Dr. Natter is a pioneer in Graphic Medicine, a field that explores the interaction between different mediums of art and the discourse of healthcare. Ladies and Gentlemen, I could not be more excited to share my conversation with Dr. Mike Natter, a current Internal Medicine Resident in New York City known for his Art Work, graphic illustrations, and narrative medicine. Mike grew up with an unusual path to medicine first learning to care for his Diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes and studying Studio Art during his undergraduate career. Mike has a passion for taking his art to medical education, graphic novels, educating the public, and using it as a tool to teach, learn, and explain what it is like to be both a patient and physician balancing residency in a big city. In this episode we dive deep discussing his path to medicine, how he fought against the odds to get into medical school, what it is like being a patient and a physician, how he uses his art in his own education, how he finds the time to draw with his residency schedule, where he thinks the future of medicine is going, and what he thinks is the perfect type of medical practice for patients.

    This is a conversation blending medicine, art, and the humanities.
