Listen now
Description
Dr. Daniela Lamas, an Instructor in Medicine at Harvard Medical School and an attending physician in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital chats with Blake Smith (host) about a career in Pulm/CCM. They talk together about the field of Pulm/CCM at large - from outpatient pulmonary clinic (COPD, asthma) to the ICU - in addition to sub-specializing in specific genetic diseases (CF), lung transplants, or interstitial lung diseases. They also talk about what it's been like to be an intensivist during the pandemic as a clinician at the bedside, navigating difficult conversations with families in new formats. They discuss Dr. Lamas’ love of writing  as an outlet for patient care in the hospital, and how she serves as a guest contributor to prominent publications, is a writer on the medical TV show “The Resident”, and author of a newly-published book. You can find some of her guest essays in the New York Times here: https://www.nytimes.com/by/daniela-j-lamas
