Really Like What's Going on Here
This is to me truly inspirational. For those who care about medicine, caring for patients and also caring about themselves, I think this is worth a listen.
The podcast is spot on!
Dr. Darko, thank you so much for making this podcast. (I believe you posted it on the YBAD Facebook group) As an incoming OBGYB intern, the dialogue presented in this podcast is right on the money as far as shaping how we as physicians can make great opportunities- especially in our current healthcare climate! I've been looking everywhere for a platform with these types discussion, so again thank you!
Love the podcast
As a newly minted physician this podcast is really refreshing to see that we dont all have to follow the "traditional route". I am a new listener but I am going back to listen to all of them. Thank you
