#39 Dr. Ali Abdaal
Stoked to have @aliabdaal on the podcast. We were able to talk about lots of things, including his businesses and some advice for starting on YouTube. I have been following Ali for quite some time, so it was a great time to have him on the podcast to talk about some things that I see Common Sense Medicine becoming throughout my journey in medicine.
First, we talked about the video aspects of medical education. He thought it would be fun, and it would be a cool thing to start the podcast. We also talked about optimizing his productivity in medical school and tech, which he covers in his YouTube channel.
We also talked about how the UK and US differ in their structure of medical school. He was able to use his passion for coding to start a business based on his score on the BMAT (the medical entrance exam in the UK).
