Clinicians are often referred to as heroes for the long hours we work and the life saving work that we do. However, this idea of the "invincible" doctor often does a disservice to our profession and patients by creating the idea that disease and illness are only experienced by our patients. Our guests, Dr. Justin Bullock and Dr. Mansi Sheth, share their stories of going through medical training with a chronic illness and discuss the limitations of our medical system in doing so.
Trigger warning: This episode discusses suicide and suicidal ideation.
