“I don’t believe that work-life balance truly exists. What I think we can strive for is self-compassion”

Dr. Resa Lewiss is Professor of Emergency Medicine & Radiology as well as Director of the Point-of-Care Ultrasound Division at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.  She is also the host of The Visible Voices Podcast.

Dr. Adaira Landry is an Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine at Harvard Medical School & Assistant Residency Director for the Harvard Affiliated Emergency Medicine Residency Programs

Dr. Landry and Dr. Lewiss join Explore The Space Podcast to discuss a superb paper they co-authored on what efficient mentorship looks like. This was a springboard into a discussion of how we can all work smarter, why work-life balance is a myth, & their shared love of point of care ultrasound.
