DO NOT MISS OUT! AMAZING THINGS ARE COMING!

Episode 40: Surgery training and practice are more flexible than you think with Dr. Feibi Zheng

Dr. Zheng chose to take a non-traditional path in training after a patient had a bad outcome due to what she thought was a failure of the hospital system. She went to Duke during research/personal development time and got her MBA with a focus on health sector management for 2 years. And that was just the beginning. She created a start-up business on gaming for skills acquisition and knowledge transfer. She returned to complete her residency, but continued her nontraditional path, working part time as an endocrine surgeon and as Medical Director at Intuitive Surgical. She credits strong mentorship and knowing her value for her success in achieving the career that she wanted. She decided that her career can work around her needs, not the other way around.
