Mentorship is built into a physician's clinical training, but what happens after medical school and fellowship ends? Finding a mentor to help guide your career and provide insight from their own experience is an important part of leadership development.
In this SoundPractice episode, Cheryl Toth and Mike Sacopolus talk with Michael Lalor, MD, MBA about the value of mentoring based on his years of experience as both a mentor and a mentee.

Today we join the conversation around COVID-19 and the use of technology and telemedicine to enable efficient communication among physicians, healthcare professionals, and patients.
In this Bonus SoundPractice episode, Mike Sacopolus speaks with Dr. Peter Alperin. Peter Alperin, MD trained as an internal medicine physician at UCSF and is currently Vice President at Doximity where he leads the development of products geared towards clinicians.
Communication is the centerpiece of good healthcare and the use of technology (remote evaluation and monitoring, basic video conferencing, telemedicine) is being used to triage patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Alperin discusses how physicians and payers are embracing telehealth, using technology for clinical care, and the emerging models for reimbursement for these services. Physicians are also honing their clinical skills, working remotely in a safe manner, and looking for jobs and opportunities that leverage telemedicine and other technologies.
Join us as Dr. Alperin shares his thoughts on technology and telemedicine benefits for patients and physicians, particularly when practicing amid an infectious disease pandemic like COVID-19.

When a lack of effective leadership eroded trust in a 100+ year old health system, the organization needed a respected leader who could restore faith and employee engagement. In this SoundPractice episode, Cheryl Toth and Mike Sacopolus talk with general surgeon Michael Canady, MD, MBA, CPE, who stepped into the role of CEO of Holzer Health System during a critical time. Dr. Canady describes the path he paved to move the organization from a culture of fear to a culture of trust, and how the simple change of allowing employees to step up and do the right thing for patients has reduced fear and rebuilt organizational culture.
It’s a strong argument. We pay more per person for healthcare than any other country in the world. That high price tag does not translate into the best outcomes. Several dozen countries obtain better results for less money. Dr. Grace Terrell, Chief Executive Officer at Eventus Wholehealth, and healthcare attorney Julian (Bo) D. Bobbitt, Jr., attorney at Smith Anderson and President of Value Health Partners, LLC have authored a new book, Value-Based Healthcare and Payment Models: Including Frontline Strategies for 20 Clinical Subspecialties, which points to value-based healthcare as a model to replace the prevalent fee-for-service model. Mike Sacopolus and Cheryl Toth, in this episode, looks at the requirements and benefits associated with value-based healthcare.
