Rerelease: Rheumatology Made Ridiculously Simple with Adam Brown, MD

Adam Brown, MD, is a rheumatologist at Cleveland Clinic and the host of the Rheuminations podcast. For the med students out there, we discuss why someone would choose rheumatology and why they are frequently the smartest doctors in the hospital. We discuss the basics of arthritis, how to interpret an ANA and why we shouldn’t be so laser-focused on our own organ systems if a patient isn’t improving as expected. We also discuss why gout is such an underappreciated phenomenon.

Dr. Brown went to med school at the University of New Mexico and then did residency Georgetown in Internal Medicine. He then did fellowships in rheumatology and vasculitis, both at Cleveland Clinic, where he currently practices. He authored Rheumatology Made Ridiculously Simple, a herculean feat for such a complex specialty.

How to Build a Winning Team with Aaron Fritts, MD, of Backtable

Dr. Aaron Fritts is a co-founder of BackTable and a practicing Interventional Radiologist in Dallas, Texas. Early in his practice, Dr. Fritts realized the need for centralized, in-depth procedure and device information that his peers could access on the fly. Not long after, BackTable was born. Backtable is a podcasting brand for physician education, which started as interventional radiology and now also includes ENT, urology and their newest podcast, innovation, for physician entrepreneurs. We talk about the origin of the backtable, where he sees it evolving, what will happen if he starts including specialties that don’t have backtables and most importantly how to build a team. I have chosen to outsource everything, whereas he has slowly built his team, so this was good information for me. But, one big takeaway for me was JoinHandshake.com, so I’m eventually going to hire a premed to help me. It’ll be a good experience for them, something interesting for the resume and will take some tasks off my plate. He tries to convince me to join him for the next podcast convention. I think he just wants to hang out since I come across as so much fun.  Backtable.com

This is a podcast that answers the question, “what should we have been learning while we were memorizing Kreb’s cycle?” This is a practical guide for practicing physicians and other healthcare practitioners looking to improve in any and all aspects of our lives and practices.
