These in-depth interviews with family medicine leaders give listeners insight into pivotal experiences that have led to opportunities for personal growth and the development of leadership skills during times when healthcare professionals are addressing:
  • Motivation and Mentorship
  • Burnout and Transitions
  • Milestones and Meaning
  • Barriers and Bureaucracy

In our most recent podcast series, Academic Medicine Leadership Lessons: COVID-19, family medicine educators are rising to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic by redesigning health systems, inventing new ways to train learners, and providing the best possible care to patients. Much has been accomplished quickly and with great ingenuity, and we're sharing some of those stories of adaptability, resourcefulness, and learner engagement. Recent episodes include:

  • Chip Taylor, MD, on Rapid Rural Response to COVID-19
  • Saria Saccocio, MD, on Rapid Change in Residency Programs
  • Emily Soni, DO, on the Importance of the Human Connection  
  • Tim Graham, MD, on Residency Program Challenges
