Physician's Guide to Doctoring


This is a podcast that answers the question, "what should we have been learning while we were memorizing Kreb's cycle?" This is a practical guide for practicing physicians and other healthcare practitioners looking to improve in any and all aspects of our lives and practices. Physician and non-physician experts are interviewed on a wide range of topics to help us help our patients, practices, colleagues, communities and most of all, ourselves. If you want to share you expertise on the podcast, please email me at physiciansguidetodoctoring@gmail.com.
