Becoming a Better Listener - with guest Dr. Phil Stahel - Life improvement strategies for the surgeon that wants more ... in 10 minutes - Episode 1

Pump the brakes on your week and take 10 minutes to make your life as a surgeon just a little better…

We are welcoming orthopaedic trauma surgeon, Phil Stahel, onto the NEW Surgeon Masters podcast, where he’ll challenge us to work on becoming better listeners in order to become better surgeons.

How does he recommend becoming a better listener?

  • Step 1 - Shut Up

  • Step 2 - Listen for 2 minutes!

  • Step 3 - Don’t interrupt!

Dr. Stahel also recommends...

  • Asking your patients how they want to be addressed. First name? last name? other?

  • Asking your patients what makes them happy?

If you’re not familiar with Dr. Stahel, his book, Blood, Sweat and Tears - Becoming a Better Surgeon, is an enlightening dive into his 20-year journey from intern to successful surgeon and global patient safety advocate.

It is a perfect example of how surgeons can be both talented in the theater and talented outside of it.

Because it’s so important to me that you have an opportunity to hear Dr. Stahel’s invaluable insights, I want to make it as easy as possible for you to listen to our chat.
