We kick off our new season with "Rebirth." Rebirth is an interesting concept in medicine because, for patients, it means one thing. It can mean the patient who hits rock bottom and is finally ready to make a change in their lives. It can mean a new organ in a patient, a literal rebirth for both the donor and the receiver. From the physician side, though, it's a bit different. Some cases, patients, and moments really catapult us into a rebirth because it jars your understanding of yourself...

We see things that make sense – like “oh you eat a supersize bag of flaming hot Cheetos, and now you have chest pain?” – that makes sense. But sometimes we see things with no explanation, that make no sense, that might make you believe life is unfair, or that give you new hope in the universe. Sometimes we see miracles, sometimes we see tragedies – all with no explanation -- and in those times we just have bewilderment and the stunned feeling of humility, that there are things out of our...

Some of our stories have been a bit more heart, some of ours have been a bit more soul – and in this episode we’re a bit more brain, with our theme “Today I Learned”.

Today we have three physicians, from still-in-training to seasoned and “been around the block” physicians, who...
