Finding Fulfillment: Just what the doctor ordered

Steve Busalacchi speaking White Coat Wisdom

This presentation is punctuated with actual audio segments from physicians featured in White Coat Wisdom.

A notable aspect of this book-writing experience and interviewing these doctors was the tremendous satisfaction they had in their work. It wasn’t about money, power or prestige. It is about doing something meaningful for others. In fact, these docs don’t even consider medicine, work, per se. It’s more like a calling. There is plenty we all can learn from this attitude, no matter what kind of profession we’re in.

In his thought-provoking presentation, medical journalist and author Steve Busalacchi discusses what he’s learned after extensive interviews with several dozen notable physicians featured in his new book, White Coat Wisdom: Extraordinary doctors talk about what they do, how they got there and why medicine is so much more than a job.

Steve has interviewed hundreds of physicians during his 25-year medical journalism career. That access to the brightest minds led to White Coat Wisdom, which has been endorsed by former U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, MD and the Mayo Clinic Proceedings

Steve has reported for National Public Radio and Wisconsin Public Radio, and understands how to get and tell a good story.
