Episode 11: Drs Dipesh Gopal and Ebrahim Mulla | March 2019
So exciting to bring you this latest episode, recorded in March 2019, just before I embarked an an adventure of my own living and working in Berlin.
This episode was with two very inspiring and positive academic GP trainees, Dipesh Gopal and Ebrahim Mulla. We delved into why this isn't always seen as an attractive career move for people coming into General Practice, as well as a bit about perceptions about General Practice in medical schools and secondary care.
We also talk about a subject close to their hearts - finding happiness, purpose and work-life balance. They navigate through some really insightful stuff, bringing their own experiences and some excellent resources for people who might be interested in finding out more.
