On Doctor+, we explore the adventures, hobbies, and activities of Internal Medicine doctors.

We often recognize doctors for their clinical work, research ,and academic achievements. But we don't always get to hear about the other sides of their lives: their “pluses." On the Doctor+ podcast,  Dr. David Hilden and Dr. Tseganesh Selameab spend a few minutes getting to know their colleagues in a new way. We hope these conversations allow us to build community and start seeing the many ways all our pulses connect.
