Episode 41: Positive effects in realizing emotional, physical, and mental stretching.

Welcome to Episode 41 of the Sustainable Clinical Medicine Podcast!

In this weeks episode, we have the honor of welcoming Dr. Ali Novitsky as our special guest. Dr. Novitsky shares her journey as a neonatologist, her experiences with 24-hour shifts, and her insights on finding a balance between a thriving medical career and motherhood.

Dr. Novitsky dives deep into her decision to transition to OptumHealth, a job that offered higher pay, set hours, and no weekends or holidays, while still maintaining her clinical practice.

Throughout the episode, Dr. Novitsky emphasizes the importance of self-awareness when it comes to physical, mental, and emotional health. She reflects on her past lack of awareness and the challenges faced in medical training, where topics like coaching and holistic well-being were not extensively discussed.
