With Dr Josh Case and Dr Eloise Sobels
The traditional perception of a career in medicine in Australia involves graduating medical school, completing two years as a junior doctor, and then pursuing specialist training in an area of clinical medicine. However, it is now becoming increasingly more common for doctors to embark on non-traditional pathways in medicine such as diversifying one’s career to include digital health, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, writing, and management consulting. In this podcast, Eloise Sobels speaks with Dr Josh Case about the intersection of medicine and software, but more broadly about the benefits of walking a different path to those conventionally bestowed upon us.
