In which Shree talks to Dr. Frank Warsh, a Canadian Family Doctor who was in clinical practice until 2015 who now works as a coroner.

Shree and Frank talk about the transition from their pre-medical and medical school years, realizing whether medical school is right for you, and prospects for the future if you realize medicine isn’t for you.
