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, 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.
