This episode of Radio Rounds features a dynamic and truly eye-opening interview with pediatrician and author Dr. Robert Marion, whose new book — Genetic Rounds: A Doctor’s Life in the Field that Revolutionized Medicine — is a poignant description of his daily work in the cutting-edge field of clinical genetics.
Dr. Marion (left) speaks candidly with ‘Rounds’ hosts Avash Kalra and Lakshman Swamy about a variety of topics — including his experiences during residency during the early 1980s, which are described in his bestseller The Intern Blues. He tells stories that highlight what can happen to physicians when they are pushed to their physical and mental limits. And he offers advice regarding how aspiring physicians can survive.
