Today’s KevinMD Post “Why are you in Medicine”
Welcome to Surviving Medicine, the podcast that takes you into the mind of the best and brightest premedical and medical students, residents and physicians discussing where Medical Education is today and the future of healthcare tomorrow.
Each week we bring you an inside look at how to survive medical education and how to thrive as a practicing physician balancing work, patients, family and friends.
My name is Frank Cusimano, your host, a third-year medical student and third year PhD student – with a passion for anything health, wellness, medical education, and healthcare related.
Today we are joined by a very special guest, the infamous Dr. Marc Katz. Dr. Katz is a current second year internal medicine resident in Philadelphia and a graduate from Ross University School of Medicine, a Caribbean medical school. Dr. Katz plans to do a fellowship in Cardiology, is a pioneer on social media and a positive presence in the blogosphere and preaches about the role of teaching younger generations. Dr. Katz is an active writer writing about medical school advice, medical school motivation, residency advice, and has been featured on KevinMD and several other online platforms. In this interview, we dive deep discussing his passion for blogging, his love for residency, his favorite books to read when he has down time, and why he is still doing research during residency. Also on a special note, Dr. Katz has a new article that was just released today, Wednesday 21st 2017 on KevinMD titled “Why are you in medicine”, inspired by this very podcast episode where I asked him that exact question. links of course are available in our show notes or on our blog – if you are listening to this months later and can not find the post, please email us and let us know.
