The doctor is in the house! In this episode I sit down with my buddy, Dr. Jon, who is currently a senior resident in pediatric radiology in New York. Before his fourth and final year of medical school, Jon decided to take a year off and spent that time working in hospitals and clinics all across South America, spending time in Brazil, Peru, Chile, Bolivia and Argentina. From treating gunshot victims in Rio de Janeiro to learning about plant medicines in the Peruvian jungle, Jon shares many stories and insights from his experience. In addition to discussing the medical aspects of his trip, we also touch on some of the social and cultural distinctions as well. Thanks for listening, I hope you enjoy.
