Hello EMIGcast listeners,

In this episode, Tate Higgins chats with Dr. Michael VanRooyen, Director of the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, about his path to a career that combines both Emergency Medicine and international humanitarian relief work.

We discuss the parallels of working in Emergency Medicine and working in conflict and disaster zones, talk about how to find your path as a student under the pressures of medical training, and hear how traveling extensively during fourth year of medical school and quitting his first job a year out of residency led to Dr. VanRooyen becoming a leader in the fields of both emergency medicine and humanitarian response.

 

There are lots of pearls in here, and you might even find yourself inspired to take renewed control of your path in medicine.

 

 

Enjoy!
