Join your host Andrew Tisser with his guest Dr. Ketan Kulkarni as they talk about how a not-so-average doctor defines and redefines success. After going full-time in clinical service, Dr. Ketan was promoted within five years. But despite having a solid support system from family and friends, Dr. Ketan was no stranger to burnout. As he talks from experience, Dr. Ketan shares how he proved physicians can also be other things outside of medicine, the questions that help you look inward, and his thoughts on why you shouldn’t focus on fixing the system.

In this episode you will learn:

  • Burnout is a signal
  • Can a physician really do other things outside of medicine?
  • What adds to a career’s success?
  • How to look inward
  • Why you shouldn’t mind the system first
