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.

Stephanie Streit is a trauma surgeon at University Medical Center in Las Vegas. She went to med school at the University of Cincinnati and did a general surgery residency at MUSC. She is currently active duty in the Air Force. She is also the host of the Breaking Scrub Podcast, where she interviews surgeons about the interesting things we do outside of the operating room. She is convinced that success outside of the OR breeds success in the OR. Did you hear that, med student? Stop tying knots and pick up your clarinet!

We start out talking about some of the more routine and mundane parts of being a trauma surgeon. We then discuss something I didn’t quite expect: how important it is to her to address the mental trauma, not just the physical trauma, in her patients. We then discuss the beginning of a trauma assessment, which is CAB, not ABC and how stopping a life-threatening hemorrhage is likely the only thing you can do if you find yourself at the scene of a trauma. Hold pressure and stop the bleeding! We close with discussing why we podcast and her biggest takeaway from her show.
