Behind The Knife: The Surgery Podcast

Behind the Knife is a podcast aimed for everyone interested in not only an in-depth look at the broad range of surgical topics, but a "behind the scenes" look at the interesting, controversial and humanistic side of surgery from some of the giants in the field. Come along with Kevin Kniery, Jason Bingham, John McClellan and Scott Steele on a journey that explores all the disciplines of General Surgery in this informal discussion and interview format. We feel that this is the perfect medium not only to cover important educational topics for all stages of your professional career, but allow you to listen to a first-hand account of not only where we have been from those that pioneered the way, but also an opportunity to explore where we are now and are headed in the not so distant future from surgical leaders.

Rural Surgery Perspectives Part 1:  Dr. Tyler Hughes

Our goal for this two part episode on rural surgery is to give listeners insight into the practice of surgery in rural setting.  Many find this area of surgery foreign as many medical schools don't emphasize rural surgery in their curriculum and many academic teaching facilities are focused in urban areas with little exposure to this world. 

Dr. Tyler Hughes walks us through his career from moving from a metro area to small town USA and why he decided to stick around.  More importantly, we also discuss the need for rural surgeons and the advantages/disadvantages of practicing in this environment.

We hope it is as eye opening for you as it was for us! 

Next week we will talk with Dr. Gary Timmerman on his experiences in rural surgery. Enjoy!
