DocWorking: The Whole Physician Podcast

“...and physicians, we’re not good at doing this for ourselves, you have to give yourself some grace. Right? Like, ‘You’re being hard on yourself. You’re a good person, you’re working hard, you deserve the best.’” -Dr. Bradley Block

In today’s episode, Jen has a conversation with the host of the Physician’s Guide to Doctoring Podcast, Dr. Bradley Block, to talk about the ins and outs of physician podcasting. Have you ever thought about starting your own podcast or just wondered about the inner workings? In this episode, Jen asks Brad about his start at podcasting, what motivated him to do that, and the guest who most inspired him. They discuss whether podcasting is a viable side gig. If you’re a healthcare provider thinking about joining the podcast world, this is the episode for you!

Bradley Block, MD, is an otolaryngologist – head and neck surgeon on Long Island, New York, where he lives with his wife and three young sons. He is a partner at ENT and Allergy Associates and he created the Physician’s Guide to Doctoring Podcast. It is a scintillating and engaging podcast, where he interviews physician and non-physician experts to help teach us what we should have been learning while we were busy memorizing the Kreb’s Cycle. It is a practical guide for practicing physicians, physicians-in-training and all allied health professionals. Topics range from personal finance to politics to improving interactions with patients to what every doctor should know about different specialties. You can find him at PhysiciansGuidetoDoctoring.com and on Twitter and rarely on Instagram @physiciansguide. You can’t find him on TikTok, Snapchat, Etsy or on Pinterest and you probably never will.

Dr. Block attended medical school at SUNY Buffalo, graduating with research honors, and went on to ENT residency at Georgetown University Medical Center. He enjoys surfing (yes, there is surfing on Long Island), skiing (there is no skiing on Long Island), smoking meat, exercising, throwing his sons across the pool and finding any excuse to quote an 80s movie.

Doctors devote their lives to caring for others. But does that mean they must sacrifice their own health and wellbeing? Absolutely not!

At DocWorking, we have developed a unique way to embrace it all.

The caring for others that you do so selflessly AND the caring for YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY that you crave in order to bring it all into the perfect balance specific to YOU.

What if we told you that you CAN have it all? The career you dreamed of when you decided to become a doctor AND the life outside of medicine that you desire?

DocWorking empowers physicians to get back on the path to achieving their dreams.

Take Back Your Time: Get a Virtual Assistant

Working in the medical field is fulfilling but it can also be exhausting. Physicians often sacrifice their personal time to carry out their duties. They want to go on vacations, start passion projects, or start side businesses but finding the time seems impossible. Recently, more and more physicians are giving outsourcing a try. Outsourcing allows you to delegate tasks to virtual assistants so you can free up your time and finally do whatever it is you’ve been wanting to do.
