The Geeky Medics Podcast aims to inspire and inform through discussions with some of the most fascinating individuals in the world of healthcare and medical education.
In this episode, we chat with Dr Peter Feldschreiber, a dual-qualified barrister and physician. He takes us through his incredibly diverse career journey which has included research, medical school, anaesthetic training, general practice, big pharma, regulation and medical law. We discuss how medical education has changed, the transferable skills medics possess and how the underlying ethics of law differ from medicine. Host: Joshua Chambers Producers: Alice Appleton & Lewis Potter
In our first episode, we chat with Dr Abdulkarim Ekzayez about his experiences of working as a neurosurgery resident during the Syrian conflict. After his neurosurgery training was suddenly interrupted by the outbreak of war, he joined Save the Children in 2013 and helped to re-build the primary healthcare system in North-West Syria, including re-establishing a routine vaccination program in the region.
