Medspectives - the Podcast about Health Professionals, the Stories of Their Practice, and Their Diverse Perspectives into the World Around Us
Medspectives is the podcast about health professionals, the stories of their practice, and their diverse perspectives into the world around us. The goal of the show is to capture the viewpoints of health professionals in all areas of healthcare, and to ultimately foster a greater public understanding of their different roles. Medspectives currently has a focus on covering the viewpoints and opinions of healthcare workers around the world in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the struggles they are facing. The healthcare professionals on the show speak about their personal anecdotes and experiences in medicinev in a way that anyone can understand, whether the listener has a background in medicine, or not. This past year, I've had the honor to speak with so many amazing people and they've shared countless stories: empowering stories of overcoming the odds when everything was stacked against them, funny and cute stories about the kid in the emergency room who just wanted a sticker, and heartbreaking stories about the feeling of powerlessness that arose from treating the elderly COVID patient with heart conditions who wanted nothing more than to just breathe. I've learned so much from talking to professionals ranging from an ICU nurse, emergency medicine doctors, paramedics, a trauma surgeon, spine surgeon, a nurse anesthetist among others, and this experience has been extremely eye-opening. A big goal I have in 2021 is to talk with health professionals around the globe to understand their stories and the different issues that face them. This podcast is also my Senior Honors Project, but I hope to continue working on it as a medical student, physician, and beyond.
