In this episode, we hear three different interviews with four different guests. We covered the Vascular and Endovascular Surgical Society with Dr. Jason Lee, Resident and Student Programming with Dr. Bernadette Aulivola and Dr. Cassius Ochoa Chaar, and occupational hazards for vascular surgeons with Dr. Max Wohlauer. Stay tuned for followup episodes on these and other topics from VAM!
In this episode, we hear from Dr. Carlos Bechara and Dr. William Shutze on the new SVS Surgical Coaching Program. We discuss the basics of the program and get a first hand look at what a coach and mentee interaction will look like as Dr. Bechara provides Dr. Shutze with his perspective and advice on a common non-clinical problem.
Adam and Dr. Sheahan join Miss Eilidh Gunn and Dr. Steven Yule to discuss human factors engineering, coaching, and the Non-technical Skills for Surgeons (NOTSS) taxonomy and how they can be applied to improving vascular surgery.
In light of the events unfolding across the country over the past few weeks, The Society for Vascular Surgery's Diversity Equity and Inclusion Task Force and the Wellness Task Force sponsored a webinar around race in America and its impact on our field. We at Audible Bleeding thought this was an excellent start, and we would hope to keep the conversation going.
As part of our ongoing series of COVID-19 related episodes, we interview several New York City vascular surgeons to see what lessons can be gleaned from their experiences during the first few weeks of the pandemic. We discuss such topics as call coverage, redeployment, setting up a line service, and protecting ourselves from infection while caring for the COVID-19 patient.
