In October, the Radio Rounds crew visited Mt. Carmel Hospital in Columbus, Ohio and met Dr. Conrad Fischer -- author of Routine Miracles: Restoring Faith and Hope in Medicine, Chair of Medicine for Kaplan Medical and Director of Educational Development for Nassau University Medical Center in New York.
That afternoon, hosts Avash Kalra, Lakshman Swamy, and Shamie Das sat down with Dr. Fischer and conversed about a variety of topics -- the miracles of modern medicine, the heroic culture that should be instilled in physicians and medical schools, and the motivation that leads many of us to this profession in the first place. In this episode, we aired Part I of that conversation, and we hope you get a chance to hear it. This was without a doubt one of the most inspiring and dynamic interviews we have ever featured on Radio Rounds.
The dynamic Dr. Fischer challenges the notion that the practice of medicine was somehow "better" 25 years ago, and he proclaims a call to action for all medical students and physicians. As he says, we should want to go "cure a disease before lunchtime!"
Also in this episode, we spoke to Dr. Larry Lawhorne (Chair of Geriatrics at the Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine) and Beth Delaney (Program Manager of Palliative Care at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio). As part of a special tribute to Veterans Day, we discussed with Beth and Dr. Lawhorne a unique "Honor Flight" program, as well as unique health care issues related to veterans (e.g. post-traumatic stress disorder).
UP NEXT: Next Sunday (November 22), tune in to live streaming audio on our blog at 12 p.m. ET to hear the second part of our conversation with Dr. Conrad Fischer. For more, our website: http://www.radiorounds.blogspot.com
