Physician's Guide to Doctoring with Bradley B. Block, MD

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 with personal and professional development.

Ashwini Bapat, MD, is a palliative care doctor and co-Founder of Hippocratic Adventures  a community of US-trained physicians practicing and dreaming of practicing medicine outside the US. She is also the founder of EpioneMD  which provides virtual serious illness coaching and advance care planning to individuals and telepalliative care consultations to healthcare organizations. 

We talk about the origins of both Hippocratic Adventures and EpioneMD. She also dispels the myth that you need to do a residency in a country to practice there. In fact, the US seems to be the only country that requires residency be done internally, giving us the ability to practice almost anywhere we speak the language. We also discuss how she set up a telemedicine practice without having to get licensed in all 50 states, and given she’s in Portugal, we talk very briefly about the Portuguese healthcare system.
