How Jeff the Doctor, Engineer, and Startup Junkie finally put himself first: A success story By Steve Kamb • Last Updated: January 3, 2019 • 3 comments Today, I have a different kind of success story for you. Hill Street Blues is an American serial police drama that aired on NBC in primetime from 1981 to 1987 for a total of 146 episodes. The show chronicled the lives of the staff of a single police station located on the fictional Hill Street, in an unnamed large city, with “blues” being a slang term for police officers for their blue uniforms. The biggest tech CEOs will be testifying to Congress on Wednesday for a big antitrust hearing, including Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Apple’s Tim Cook, Google’s Sundar Pichai, and Amazon.

The story was live and it was a bombshell: The first paragraph included the words “insider trading,” an ominous phrase that raised the specter of criminal prosecution. “I. John becomes acquainted with William. John Kramer was a successful civil engineer. Along with his friend and lawyer, Art Blank, he founded the Urban Renewal Group, a foundation dedicated to property development for needy people under the motto “Four walls build a home.”His first building was the Gideon Meatpacking Plant at 11235 Blake Drive.

At one point in his life, he. When he finally figured out where it had all gone he turned to me and shouted ‘ you’re such an ammopig!’ and the name stuck. I currently work for a small startup website for children and moved back to Toroto 3 years ago after having worked in Hong Kong as a voice actor. I love all this online learning and have done courses through Coursera. Three days later, the undertakers finally delivered the coffin that Courson had ordered (the cheapest possible model, the equivalent of $75 USD).

Sometime during those 72 hours, a doctor visited the apartment and signed a death certificate. The official cause was listed as heart failure. No autopsy was performed.

  • Hi Dr. Jubbal! Do you have any friend who is forensic pathologist? It’s my goal specialty. Would love to go through a day with them!

  • This is the second time I’ve watched this, partly for a more objective view, and I remain with the same take. The numbers are fine and understood, but they’re irrelevant to what those that have messaged you argue, I bet. The reason they’ve messaged you arguing what they argued is that you already placed yourself in the 4% that succeed. If you kept doing what you were doing, you would have succeeded because you have a deep understanding of the medical field and studies than most, like me, could dream of.

    I would never have quit, but that’s me.

  • However, you have succeeded to be a doctor, so I believe the calculation is wrong, the risk for you to be a doctor is 0%. Anyway, I’m happy for you to do what you would like to do.

  • You might not be able to be an entrepreneur and surgeon since it’s a lot to handle, but you know what you can do together that isn’t too much to handle? Be an entrepreneur and be my man. ��������‍♂️

  • Sometimes I belive due to the long duration of medical training, many folks just loose steam and divert out of clinical practice. Just an observation. Great video and keep em coming.!

  • so true. Thats the nature of being an individual each persons experience is unique to them. End of the day, its you that has to live your life. Can’t think of anything worse than having to say if only i didn’t listen to this person i’d be what i actually wanted to be. Trust your self. You’ll only have yourself to thank or to blame.

  • My stepmother and sister both admitted to me that while in medical school the only thing they were taught about vaccines is when and how to administer them. I find that rather surprising considering like everyone else I’m quick to assume that a medical doctor knows more about vaccines than I do.

  • There are thousands of plastic surgeons that no one knows about that all basically do the same thing. Being an entrepreneur, you’re doing something unique and have a much greater chance of doing something special with greater impact, especially if you already have a good niche and some success already, like Dr. J.

  • I really like this type of video you made
    I enjoy it EVEN in the intro
    Pls keep doing videos like this
    Thanks for a great content:)

  • As a 31 y/o business owner, I can say it’s indeed a challenge, lots of ups & downs, twists & turns. But there’s no better feeling than not having to answer to anyone. The key is to be consistently innovative, and create different streams of revenue.

  • I’m a final year here sitting in India at 5.30 in the morning trying to figure out what to do after my med school…. I could connect with what you were saying brother… Great advice.. Thanks..

  • I want to be a doctor but I am not really good in explaining and when infront of many people I am trembling while experiencing mental block. Huhuhu! Sad life of mine lol!

  • I’ve actually worked with a handful of nurses who did have more medical knowledge than the physicians they worked with: both residents and attendings. Typically though, these are the types of nurses that belong to like 5-7 nursing organizations and do research and have worked in everything from physical rehabilitation, to med surg, to telemetry to every type of ICU there is (from NICU, PICU to Burn ICU to Mechanical Circulatory Support ICU).

  • Hi, I have chrohnes disease as well and it’s a really tough thing to deal with from the methotrexate shots to all the medicine. Glad to know other people can do what I want to with the same thing. I’m trying to go to med-school and hopefully find something I enjoy, i am not sure what that is but maybe understanding the field will help. I appreciate the videos.

  • In america smart hard working able bodied ppl are gonna be wealthy. There r ppl who have lost every cent and come back in years richer. There are ppl who have won the lottery and ended up broke. Medicine has a high suicide rate and as a nurse i don’t feel drs. Get paid ENOUGH. It sounds like a lot but ppl dont take into account loans, malpractice insurance and unlike staff nurses there is NO overtime. Yet they are at hospital before me and leave after. And also on call!!!

  • Hi I have two questions:
    1. You mentioned choosing between computer science and medicine during college before, would you mind going into more detail eg in a future video? (Or a past video in which case I missed it:p)
    2. How do you think you’re doing now, esp compared to how you think you’d have been doing had you chose to continue down plastic surgery?

    These are rather personal questions aren’t they lol

  • I like your thinking and how you explained something that many people are not aware of. It is interesting to see that everyone has different paths and it is ultimately up to them to decide what they truly want to do for the rest of their life.

  • The only reasonable decision you could have made was to follow your passion, which you carefully analyzed and determined was entrepreneurship. Also, your Med School training enhanced your chosen route in business. The final outcome, even if you fail initially, will eventually favor whatever you decide is your passion. That’s where the most creative energy, drive and willingness to sacrifice necessary to succeed reside.

  • Can you make more videos about statistics and biases and their applications in daily life, on this channel so we can see your face

  • I have heard you explain these stats before as a defense against those criticizing you for quitting plastic surgery residency, but I think these numbers are irrelevant because the critics are judging you as one who quit as a plastic surgery resident, not as an average premed student. Certainly, much more than 4% of plastic surgery residents pass the boards and are successful.
    Anyway, the best response to the critics is just to make an impact with your entrepreneurship.

  • I think the thing that concerns people is that you already had the success as a plastics resident so it seems like a bad idea to change paths to something that might not work out. Your businesses also might already have a lot of success that many don’t see, so they see the issue of stability vs instability as a big deal.

  • If i was interested in entrepreneurship, where do i start. Being a pre-med applying to med shadowing is how you would go about it. Done hours of shadowing and working in different environment radiology, surgery, IM to EM, but where does one go to experience where ideas happen, where capital is gathered and where ideas are put into action?

  • Nice you’re back!… Still waiting for you to make a video on a comment I made 8 months ago on your ‘Public Speaking Fear Lessons Learned’… you said you would address it in a future video:P

  • But here is the thing: in medicine, you have multiple chances over and over, when you don’t get in the first time you apply, you can go work get money and poly again. That chance is always open. Then in medical school same can go, there are routes to get into plastics if you are willing to get to them if you don’t score the highest in stats and not match into plastics. There is also retaking steps and taking other routes to either make up(I don’t like this term but you get what I mean) for low stats; basically moving the bar up on one side when another.

    In the end, the chances are always there in medicine. I WANT EVERYONE (including myself) TO ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT.

    Thanks Dr. Jubbal for helping me see that. That number 4% or 12% is a bland approach to medicine (even other professions). For business, you might not get that same chance. If your small business is going to fail due to some of the reasons out there, you chances of bringing it back might be small. Especially if another competitive company is doing better, you could still have sales but very low. This sucks. You can’t compare it’s numbers to how to get to be in medicine. Your numbers here are based on how much you are willing to put in. NOT ANYTHING ELSE. And if it happens that you get low at some point and can’t put in the effort needed to go forward even at that point, that can be changed and improved with proper treatment.

  • Good job on the this video and sharing your wisdom Kevin, I like what you’re doing with youtube �� going to subscribe right now �� Are you planning to upload more videos coming?

  • I find it fascinating that in the USA you enter a “residency” straight after medical school with zero general medical experience as a Doctor. Compare this to UK, Australia, NZ, etc where you must spend a minimum of two years as a House Surgeon (general intern) after a 4, 5, or 6 year medical degree, and many spend a third year.

  • What an inspiration. I have tears in my eyes when you started talking about your family. You are the most honorable person I have ever seen in my entire life.

  • Great story. Enjoyed every minute. Glad you were able to overcome the statistics and became someone great. I’m sure your parents are proud. Thank you for sharing your story. Very inspiring

  • I don’t know man… do you really see yourself being a YouTuber in10,20,30 years time.. but that’s just me. You seem like an individual that can achieve what you want when you out your mind to it ����‍♀️

  • You’re a fucking moron for quitting plastics residency before you really even started to pursue ‘entrepreneurship.’ Although you probably will be successful regardless because you’ve proven you are capable by matching plastics. To reiterate quitting was a stupid idea especially after the average absurd 200k debt people get into going to medical school in the US. Perhaps you’re rich already though so in that case this shit doesn’t matter at all.

    This might be negative and what not, but it’s just my opinion man.

  • My family hates that I quit education, which was a “sure thing” to instead work to become a psychologist. I had to go back to college to make up some missing credits, but now I’m in my program and a year away from being able to register as a counsellor. I am happier than I ever was teaching. In a couple years I will be starting my PhD. For me, that risk, was 10000% worth it

  • Nice video! I myself am a resident in Plastic Surgery and founded my own startup about 2 years ago… so I’m trying to combine entrepreneurship and medicine myself… so far it’s going great, but it requires a lot of long days and hard work… My main purpose behind entrepreneurship is to work towards a “stable” income, next to my future job as a plastic surgeon. Because as a doctor you will only earn money in exchange for every minute of work you put into it… if you don’t work (operate), you are not earning anything… having a business on the side will guarantee (hopefully) a stable income… at least, that’s the hope:) and also, business is just freaking exciting:D

  • Bro you do what you love, people are just frustrated because you’re running a med school youtube channel and you quit residency which does not make sense to them

  • Great video! Respect your decision and analysis. My goal is to be a physician and entrepreneur which is a crazy dream. As a guy who loves both medicine and entrepreneurship I love your passion. We all have opinions and biases but one thing I have learnt to say to negative advice is “I look forward to ten years from now. We can judge then.”

  • I am a neet aspirant which is the equivalent of MCAT of U.S. and the chances of one getting into med school is only around 1%( provided you are going into a gov. Medical college and you are not in the reserved category)

  • I live in a state where two RN’s declare a death, and frankly I have NEVER seen a doctor around when a patient dies. That’s the nurse’s job. I one time walked in just after a patient died, and a doctor happened to show up and he declared that the patient was doing SO MUCH BETTER. The nurse (me) said, “That’s because he is dead. Would you like to declare the death?” He didn’t want to and said the nurses could do it and walked off. They might consult with the patient’s family about hospice choices, but are not actually there when the patient dies usually.

  • ANYBODY who wants to go through medical school should be allowed.

    Make life perfectly fair & sustainable before breeding.

    That implies make the entire world vegan & atheist.

    Until then, MANDATE VASECTOMIES & ABORTION & OUTLAW BREEDING!!

    Oh, and FUCK your political correctness if this view offends you.

    So, if doing medical work of any kind is what a person wants to do to make money, let them.
    That’s what free market anarchists, i.e. capitalists, i.e. conservatives want. So let them have it.

  • Do you think you could perhaps share your detailed analyses (on whether plastic surgery is risky)? It would be very interesting to take a look at and follow your thought process on how you came to your conclusion. Thanks!

  • Hi, I would just like to know, are you a religious person or are you a worshiper at the altar of science? If so, how does it affect you as a doctor?

  • I’m really digging the updated style and tone for the videos! The renewed effort towards the channel is really apparent. Really excited to hear about your upcoming projects and all the new video ideas.

  • I think the question that I had was stemming from how you had already gotten past the “4%” statistic. You were already in plastic surgery residency with a near 100% guarantee (let’s just say 75% chance) to come out as an attending with a successful career. When you compare that to the 10-20% of small businesses failing, it would make more sense for me to have stayed the course within the plastic surgery residency. This analysis you did would make sense for the initial premise (starting as a UCLA premed) but less so for your circumstances when you decided to leave residency to pursue entrepreneurship.

  • I’m still shocked you’ve quit your job as a PLASTIC SURGEON but then I also get the feeling you’re going to be greater than that. A lot of people want to leave their jobs but don’t have the balls to do kudos to you for taking that jump!

  • The riskiest thing is to work for an external entity. Though a high baseline salary can buffer the risk, it does not erase the fundamental difference between a capped career (medicine, science, law, or any salaried position) and scalable career (entrepreneurship). In entrepreneurship you don’t trade time for money. You trade ideas for resources to scale and execute, essentially removing your earning cap because your output depends on leveraged resources beyond yourself. Lastly, in entrepreneurship you define your own competitive advantage, which can be an amalgamation of 1 or more rare and high demand skills. In salaried jobs, a skillset is pre-defined by an institution. You don’t choose what to learn you can only compete in a (likely quickly saturating) marketplace. It can be immensely comforting (understandably so) to choose mastery of a pre-defined skillset. But comfort is not the same as low risk.

    As always, time stamps in the description.

  • I am just now running into your videos and I just want to say thank you for being you. I recently just transitioned out of the military and I am working hard to be in a Medical career field as well as a M.D. Your videos are keeping me motivated on this long difficult journey.

  • As a Louisiana resident, thank your this insight it’s sad state of affairs for our state especially in regards to health, and prison

  • Wishing you the best Kevin! Would you be able to make a video interviewing a med student/physician who went in with a BSN? Asking how they chose the MD or DO route over nursing, what are the advantages/disadvantages, any recommendations for current nursing students who want to become a physician

  • Bro. I love the fact that you following your passion. That’s great. But what I hate is the fact that people like you take the seat of other people then graduate and dt practice medicine. We’re facing shortage of doctors. If you not sure that’s what u want, don’t take someone else seat.. it’s my opinion, but I love your videos.

  • I swear to god you are one of my primary inspirations that keeps me going down the long and hard medical path. It’s honestly amazing what you did to arrive at where you are at now. Thank you so much for putting out all these amazing videos.

  • Paul George was back at it harder than ever with Kawhi and company..too bad the season ended prematurely..I think Clippers would’ve beat Lakers in the west coast conf finals this year..I say this as a 6ers fan of course..

  • As a PGY 3 radiology resident, on independent call covering several hospitals. I remember being told by a dean who ultimately rejected me, “I think you have a learning disability, you should do something else.” I’ve used that as motivation many times, now im a PGY3 radiology resident doing just fine. I remember being upset after being told that, but now i just chuckle that dean was a total clown.

  • Statistics is by far and a way the most mishandled of any discipline in regular education. That the numbers only give us a limited perspective on a fleeting situation and it’s us that construct the narrative is step 1 to them serving any purpose IMHO.

  • As a graduate nurse, I have been encouraged to page doctors for any deviations or changes with the patients’ care, just so we can “cover” ourselves from professional liability, e.g. paging to let the doctor know that the pt refused “frusemide”, and knowing that the doctor wont be able to help you with that sounds unnecessary but from a nursing perspective can get us into trouble from management. I also feel the nursing profession in general carries a heavy amount of responsibility, compared to doctorsexample, it would be the nurse’s fault for giving a patient potassium replacements that they no longer need, and instead, becomes dangerously hyperkaelemic. It would all be wrong to say that the responsibility lies with the doctor, as they are after all, the people who have prescribed this medication. Unless it is otherwise escalated to the doctor for an order to be ceased, the responsibility will fall back on the nurse even though it was the doctor’s mistake in the first place.

    Long story short, we page doctors for what we think are important, although it may be overlooked as unimportant sometimes, it is only to cover our license, not to make doctor’s work life harder.

  • Thank you for your
    advice and sharing with us what we luck I think it will be helpfull actually I despise one thing its is public speaking and I am on 4 year I think I have chance I should try thanks����

  • This is extremely inspirational. Well done Dr. Webb. God bless you and your journey. Your advice and videos have impacted this future ortho surgeon more than you know!

  • Congratulations Dr. Webb. I am a lifelong Shreveport resident myself. Went to Hillsdale elementary school, on the same stretch of greenwood Rd near the fair grounds, Midway & Fair Park.
    I’m 43 yr old now, and quit a 20 yr career to go back to school.

    It’s great to hear about a hometown success story. Best of luck to you.

  • I just finished medschool and I decided not to go to residency but instead follow my own passion.
    We may have decided late on which path to take but what is important is to do what you love regardless of what people say. It’s your life afterall.
    ����

  • What if the nurses by chance you work with are just terrible people in general?
    Speaking from experience being caretaker for my father who died from cancer when I was 16! And well as a patient myself. I feel that the terrible nurses out number the good nurses….

  • I definitely support your decision! how do you think your decision to quit would have been affected if you had 150K+ in student loans?

  • So for the match thing since you get matched is there anyway to make sure you don’t get the eye surgery one cuz I just couldn’t do that

  • My bro sent me here… I quit my pharmacy job one day without another job. You should have seen my boss’s face when I quit just to leave! ����

  • I really hope that you will answer but how long does it take to be a doctor? Like you go to med school how long does it take to really help patients? I hope you respond! <3

  • Im Not even espiring to be a doctor lest you count the pH.D I’m reaching for. But I have to say that you are one inspirational guy and Doctor. Hard working resilient, dedicated and determination that’s awesome ��

  • Amazing story of beating all odds Dr Webb. Will you be lecturing again in the near future? Book signing etc on the east coast/DC area?

  • I feel really good about the fact that “you learn a lot, you forget a lot”. I just finished my first year of medical school and I felt really guilty about forgetting almost half of the things I learned. Knowing that this is part of the road I’ve taken towards being a doctor makes me feel much better.

  • You are a rock star to those students, how inspiring. Have you ever contacted one of the programs that did not admit you to medical school. What a mistake they made. Great story, best wishes on your continued journey.

  • Not critiquing you but I do not agree with your business model via med school insiders. Richest person I’ve met owns a company well over $100million+ but has terrible glassdoor reviews for example. You will always have people who disagree with your business model and how you make a living. I happen to be one of them. I hope you all the success in the world but do not agree with what you’re doing as an entrepreneur.

    To each his own, good luck Kevin!

  • I couldn’t handle the amount of time or gore or stress that comes with the medical field but it interests me and I respect those who follow that path. You remind me of the orthopedic Surgeon who saved my leg

  • I hate it when people find out you are going to school to become a doctor and then there eyes get all wide and they tell you wow doctors make so much money. People act like u want to be to a doctor for the money but they don’t realize that you basically work so hard to go to school for over 10 years. I don’t want to be a doctor for the money. I actually want to help people in rural areas who have limited access to medical care. My family even discourages me from chasing after my dream because they think its a waste of time, and that I am wasting my life. I personally think it should be my duty when I gain my medical degree to give back to the community, share my knowledge, and help those in need. That’s why I want to become a doctor.

  • The camera quality of this video is amazing! It looks like a movie, haha. Dr. Webb’s story is also inspiring. He went through a lot and deserves everything that he worked for.

  • Heck yeah doc! Can’t wait for you to be in Plano! Wondering if possible to one day meet you/shadow you. Thanks for all the videos.

  • If you haven’t already I would consider applying to USPHS your prior service will count, but from following your videos it would help with student loans. Congrats on your recent accomplishments http://www.usphs.gov

  • You’re an inspiration Dr. Webb! Very similar life here. Grew up dirt poor, and many of my peers went to jail. I went into the Army. I did pre med classes at a local community college. The Army was both a blessing and a curse. It took 7 years, and a career change to get my degree. I’m now an RN living a comfortable life, but having gotten that experience I’m now about to get back on that train and start my Med School journey soon.

    Would be amazing to see you do more outreach lectures to Americas youth; both black and white. Show them how nothing shackles you down or holds you back but you and your own decisions.

  • I went to school n slums of Jacksonville, Florida. I was one of two white students, in my Votech school.

    Those schools no longer exist because teachers unions don’t want those schools.

    We MUST bring those schools back!

  • Wow!! This was ok good, I wanted to like it twice! (The in the background towards the end was surprising, I wanted the presentation to continue)

  • Thanks for explaining this huge misconception about anecdotes that I failed to explain to my friends and family, I’ll start using a whiteboard next time lol

  • I took two gap years because of indecision.. I was a brilliant student all my life, still am(not bragging) so I have big expectations for my life. I tried actuarial science because it pays a lot in my region, I tried aeronautical engineering because it’s for smart kids and it’s cool but I left all these. I wasn’t fulfilled. I realized maybe I should do something that gives me fulfillment and joy. Nothing would do that better than medicine. I wanna change the world and help those in need! I’m going to med school in January ��. This is motivational

  • kevin, it would be nice if u did a video on entrepreunership inside medschool and its possibilities….. also the time managemt thing

  • You’re such an inspiration! I pray that my little boys grown up to understand the importance of perseverance even in the face of statistics; I pray that they persevere against all odds! Thanks for sharing your amazing story!

  • Amazing story thank you Dr. Webb for your service to our great country! You are an inspiration sir and your story is amazing! Nice to see you inspiring young minds and helping them move forward in medicine!

  • Thanks for your Service and Continued Service. I am Proud of you and Being a War Veteran too makes me that much more proud. I hate I didn’t continue my Medical pursuit but Being a Gulf War 1 Combat Veteran my health has ran out of fuel. Anyway, Keep going! Semper Fi, Can Do and 1*SRT/TAC

  • Thank you, Dr. Webb. I am a medic in the army and have actually just accepted a slot as a fight medic. Similarly to what you did, I am also going to school.
    I was a bit disheartened to hear that your medical military background didn’t help your med school applications. I will be approximately 30 years old by the time I finish my pre-med degree and finish my military contract. I feel that I’m a bit on the older side of going to medical school, but I’m glad to hear that you stuck through it despite being some years behind your peers.

    Thank you, again.

  • Dr. Webb, thank you for your service, and best wishes with the rest of your residency and your fellowship! I’m 2 months from graduating law school, so I needed to hear your advice

  • hey there, great videos, just wanted to ask, do you need USMLE to get a fellowship in Canada after graduating from UK. I assume it is a must for US fellowships?

  • Great work! I’m a PreMed student now and I absolutely look at your content for motivation. From one BlackMan to another. Thanks for everything, Dr. Webb.

  • WOW, Love your story!Thank you because I almost gave up! Submitted applications to Nursing, PA, Pharmacy but withdrew them all over the last 10 years because my heart won’t let me give in. God led me to your page. Thank you man for sharing your story! <3

  • I really want to match into a good dermatology residence but I also want to get involved in fitness like your two friends. Unfortunately, dermatology is super competitive.

  • “You have to go through medical school to become either a Plastic Surgeon or a Pathologist and everything in between.”
    I never knew clowns needed to go to med school.

    The real question is… which specialty is closer to the clown? You’ll never know…

  • I will be applying to pre med programs soon. My plan now is to become a neurosurgeon but I am also interested in entrepreneurship!

  • As you’re on top make sure you did not step on anyone’s while you are going up. Because life is a swing. You WILL go down in life. Those going UP may step on you back as they NOW GO UP AND U TOPPLE DOWN!!! #MeanPeopleSuck!

  • I want to be a doctor
    When i grow up
    I hope i’ll be������
    i’m asian
    My family said
    JUST BE A TEACHER
    (Cuz my Mother is a Teacher)
    But still
    I want to be a doctor
    Even though i’m not that smart or intelligent
    And even if i don’t have any rewards…..
    I still want to be a doctor
    Well I HOPE.

  • i have chron’s disease, i’m on a pescatarian diet, no diary, no chocolate, no coffee…..i still have flare ups now and again.
    It’s really hard to find the trigger foods.
    Nutritional research is a mess, lots of sketchy funding involved too but the board advice is
    red meat, dairy and eggs should be restricted as much as possible and fruit and veg should be eaten probably 3x what you are currently consuming and get a variety of types. (most people do not eat enough fruit and veg and that goes for who ever is reading this comment EVEN IF VEGAN yes even you as many vegans also lean on processed foods too much.
    (any deeper info in nutrition is hard to claim as fact as of the current research climate).

  • Hey, I wanted to say tonight I started binge watching your videos. You somehow made me want to become a doctor even more. I’m gonna keep watching your videos. Thank you so much for inspiring me more. This’ll be a long journey but I’m ready for the challenge!

  • Hello.I’m a nurse and I’m 44years old i have a lot of experience but i love to be a plastic surgeon….can you please let me know how and where can i study?and being a nurse helping me to study less years to be a doctor?Thank you.

  • I’ve been in combat, and not I’m looking to save lives cuz I realized I dont want to take anymore, I want to dedicate my life to medical care.

  • Dang!!!�������� I was born in 2002 when u started this journey of medicine, and now am graduating high school and you still have a year of residency. Pretty mind boggling.

  • What if I said life is not intended to end upon death. This is the truth. In fact if you have accepted the truth of Jesus, life does not begin until we have made it past our own life. There is more meaning to this statement than what meets the eye. I encourage you to study The Holy Bible at least once. It may not be for the purpose of becoming religious, but instead look at it for understanding. Hopefully you will see that this is not a religion at all, instead it is the way to life. One acronym that can be applied to the word bible, is Basic Instruction Book for Living on Earth. You will discover that nearly every successful person follows these rules without even knowing it!

  • I’m someone who suffers from Crohn’s disease. My whole life I’ve had dreams of becoming a doctor, and while I’m only in High School, I want to get an earlier start at applying myself in the medical field. I’m so glad to hear that someone who suffers from same condition isn’t being held back by their condition, and is able to succeed in the medical field. I’ve had a lot of worries about my condition stopping me from following my dreams, so I’m very glad to hear that Crohn’s hasn’t stopped you from following yours.

  • Pls do a video about friendship inside medical school
    because I really don’t understand how to be a friend while we are competing each other too
    From my experience, it’s really hard to trust someone that you have to compete with
    Side note: when I was in high school, I helped my friend to study for college and he helped me back too
    But in med school you rarely receive others trust and that’s really unhealthy for me
    Pls tell me how to cope with this type of problem or just why it happens and how to adapt to it
    Thanks for reading my comments

  • Love your vids. The bit at the end reminded me of trying to tell vegans there was research that indicated they were wrong, only to say that they can’t make the outlandish claims that they do. I’m currently working as a research scientist that works on models of how exogenous compounds cause pathologies, but I was the “pseudo intellectual” who hadn’t “done the research”. Some people are astounding. Just wanted to say thanks for these. I’m applying hopefully this cycle but idk how corona is going to impact everything. I watch your videos sometimes on study breaks.

  • Do they seriously have people eating in the audience when the man came all the way to talk to them? It’s not a damn movie, show some respect.

  • I pray my son keeps his passion. He hasn’t faced much diversity in life but he works as hard as any for his future in medical. God bless you for seeing over every obstacle as a young soldier and staying with the path.

  • My mega smart cousin graduated high school at 16, graduated MIT at 19 with a B.S. in biochemistry and economics, went to Yale med for an M.D./Ph.D and dropped out after his first year of medical school. His sequence after that was McKinsey (consultant all the way up to junior partner making $800k/year in his mid 20s), later VP of an investment banking firm, and finally CEO of a boutique biotechnology company making over $1 million/year.

  • Thank you Doctor Webb. I just completed 7 years in the Navy and currently work as a Respiratory Therapist. I intend to follow in your footsteps. Thanks for the advice about there being different paths for everyone to possibly achieve the same goal!

  • I would do anything to get into med school!sadly in my country it’s really really hard to get in and even though I did well on the test, it wasn’t enough to get in. Here’s to a life of a nurse who had bigger dreams, f me

  • I swear some people feel their opinion is the right and best opinion. Don’t even let it faze you. Everyone defines their own happiness. I’m so happy to see you enjoy your decision!��

  • i’m only a freshman in high school and i want to become an orthopedic surgeon. i’m trying my hardest in biology and i’m going to see about taking a health science class next year (a couple of years early). my parents are supporting me and i was inspired by my local orthopedic doctor, Kevin Vanden Berge of Stephenville, Texas. i need to know what classes i should take in high school and what i should major in once i’m in college. also, could you give any tips or anything i could study or look at over the next few years until college? thanks!

  • You don’t speak to a group huge like a class population (around 20 and 30 people), right?
    You speak to a group that is around 3-10 persons or maybe 5 and more, is that it?

  • Better read My Medical -Legal Back Pages, Publisher Archway. Bryce Sterling nom de plume, if you are thinking about going into medicine, getting married as a doctor. Realize that medicine will be nothing like what you think it is, until it’s too late for a lot of you. The dark side of medicine and the pitfalls. A very depressing, long and brutal book based entirely on actual events in KY and later in NC. Funny you mentioned bodybuilding. I won a few building contests while in medical school, as I didn’t know what to do after being college captain and winning regional college wrestling championship, but I suspect due to insecurities and maybe some narcissistic tendencies, (but none were ever identified during my divorce psych evals. pushed by my treacherous physician ex-wife who had traits of being histrionic, narcissistic, and hedonistic.) I went on to a “career” in orthopedic surgery. Suspended by the KY Board of Medical Licensure, career ruined by a righteous medical board, for an operating room nurse’s premeditated act of misconduct, directing an unauthorized tech to select and draw up meds resulting in a patient death from a lethal injection. I was unaware this prohibited transfer of duty had occurred behind my back. I now hate medicine as much as I do sports. A medical “colleague” who stabbed me in the back in NC had this to say about physicians: “Doctors are not nice people.” How true. A high number of narcissists and sociopaths, almost as many as in the legal profession. And finally, the best line by a nephrologist in MS, my last stand in medicine, “Physicians have given away their profession.”

    The nurses resent the doctors’ status for the most part, and constantly lurk as assassins. But even worse, your own physician spouse, lawyers, and other physicians can be your worst enemies, and most certainly the hospital administrator and the state medical boards. There is a high percentage of sociopaths in medicine as well as law.
    Don’t want to type too much because my Google reviews have all been shadowbanned and I suspect YouTube, owned by Google, may scrub this as well.

  • Not to be morbid but I hear Doctors have the highest level of suicide. I imagine the stress and dealing with parients dying asnd the guilt trip some families (and you) lay on you can take it’s toll.

  • Omgee!! I’m from Baton Rouge, LA. You’re such an inspiration. Even though I’m not in a medical program, you inspire me to work harder and study harder to become a Licensed Social Worker. You’re such an amazing inspiration.

  • Lol as a nurse this nurse-resident tension nonsense is such a pet peeve. We are all on the same team and we can’t do our jobs without each other. We have different skill sets and pressures but the patient always comes first. Sometimes nurses can be petty, sometimes residents can be on a high horse. It’s so toxic and not helpful. Everyone needs to be better and demand excellence from themselves. I think most of this tension comes from a lack of understanding of each others roles, responsibilities and pressures. It’s nonsense when I hear nurses page the residents at 0300 for a melatonin order for a patient, and I know stuff like that happens because I see it all the time. Just want to share an example of when these toxic working relationships can effect patients:
    I had a resident who though of himself as Mr. Mcdreamy and would go around to patients and the nurses flirting and not just focusing on doing his job well and being a team player. He really came in to the unit with a heir about him and his white coat and was super flashy about it all. Anyways I called him because I had a osteosarcoma patient with lung mets who had absent breath sounds on the left lung field. Vitally totally stable, looked well, the only change in his vitals was that his SpO2 was 94% and it’s usually closer to 96-98%. On room air, stable heart rate. I noticed some deviation of the trachea to the right. He also had a reflexive dry cough when turning onto his side. I couldn’t assess how he did with exertion as he was bed bound second to the location of his sarcoma in the legs and he was on bedrest. Denied any shortness of breath, etc. Anyways called this resident and said we need a CXR I think he probably has a pneumothorax. Based on his history of lung Mets, his clinical presentation I’d say he has one although he looks well and looks to be compensating really well too. Anyways I had to go above him because he didn’t believe me as a nurse, that I could make these conclusions. He ordered an NP swab for the cough (eye roll). Anyways I went above his head and escalated it to his more senior resident who ordered a chest X-ray right away because we have a good working relationship (I don’t do this very often, I’d prefer to advocate and build that relationship with who I’m calling but I was getting no where with Mcdreamy after two phone calls). Anyways did at STAR CXR and the patient had a massive pneumothorax. Radiology called mcdreamy stat with the results and even called me to ask how the patient was. Thoracics put in a CT and reinflated the lung. Ended up needing pleurodesis a few times to try and fuse the pleural layers. If I had given up on escalating care and just written “MD aware” of findings from my assessment then the patient would have been without a chest tube for a while given his ability to compensate so well. I could have easily just been done with dealing with Mcdreamys attitude and let it affect my patient. Just a note: not writing this to make it seem like I’m so much better than him by any means, we have a good working relationship now and I think we both walked out of that scenario with a better understanding of what we as a team could improve on. I better understood his pressure of having to justify to his seniors why he ordered a chest X-ray for a vitally stable patient he didn’t assess himself. And we didn’t have the relationship where he felt he could fully get behind and support my clinical skills, maybe because he gets silly calls from nurses sometimes about melatonin. It’s hard to say fully, but at the end of the day the patient got the care he needed and we both walked away with a better working relationship.
    Anyways my point is that we need to work together, listen, ask questions, and put ego aside. We are all under our own pressures, all have our own scopes of practice but we are all 100% here to care for our patients and all rely on each other to do that job well.

  • What is the tacnic requer to develop during your medical school before and after getting into medical school?????
    Plz answer this question for me

  • In my experience, if you make an enemy with a nurse, they’re not going to punish you, but they also may not do you any favors. If you collaborate with, support, or defend a nurse, he or she will have your back and go the extra mile for you.

  • Im 17 and im so excited to become a neurosurgeon, the brain is such a fascinating organ in the body. I can’t wait for medical school after my undergrad

  • Im a nutritionist and im pissed at some health professionals who think they know better but havent studied or didnt get a degree in nutrition. So much information is wrong and people tend to believe it. Doctors who refer patients to nutritionists are a plus. People think nutritionists are just cooks at hospitals but the reality is we say and give the diet appropriate for each disease and food shouldnt be underestimated because food is medicine too. All these meds wont work if ur diet is wrong

  • Often nurses tend to think they are smarter and more capable than doctors. How do you cope with nurses looking down to you or what do you think one should do in that situation?

  • we live in section 8. very low income. I thank God my daughter won the Parkland magnet engineering program lottery. She’s graduating high school w an engineering associates degree

  • I love Dr Webb he’s the best
    I’ve never felt like I could accomplish anything I use to give up on myself I listened to his stories and he’s pushed me so far in believing myself I would love to meet DR WEBB JUST TO SAY THANK YOU ��
    May God continue to bless you and your family always ❣️ God sent one of his angels down to us��

  • Most people are actually more comfortable around nurses than Doctors. This is also true of NPs and PAs as they seem more humble and receptive to patient concerns, while Doctors are forced to juggle many tasks, leaving their bedside manner lacking.

    In fact many professional Doctorates (Au.D., D.P.M., PsyD) suffer from this, even if their education level exceeds that of MD or DOs (Research doctorates suffer from this backlash, when their education is 7+ graduate level education in a specialized field such as Virology or Microbiology).

    This is why I wasn’t shocked when my wife’s NP actually asked that her new employer offer my wife a position as her personal charge nurse and yes, my wife immediately accepted.

  • Lol I was a CNA and I came out of a patient’s room to having my chief nurse rip on a doctor’s ass for yelling at one of the RN’s. Ufffff that doc was red.

  • I wanted to be a doctor at one point, good pay, interesting job and easy emigration out of Ireland, I was considering South Africa or America, but I realised I was probably too stupid and decided to follow a software career, sadly my emigration options are shit, only Eu and japan ��.

  • You’re probably the type of guy that I would invite for a drink, sit down and talk for hours without getting bored. You’re awesome

  • One day an app replace all the doctors, and the nurses and techs will be the only health workers left. They will carry out the instructions coming from a computer. They might even return to making house calls on an Uber like platform.

  • When I graduate, I won’t be practicing medicine. This path I took has burned me out and I’m not sacrificing my sanity for a profession where you are treated like garbage, indoctrinated that sacrificing everything for the patient is good, and where only the top 1% can actually earn what people think a doctor should be earning. For anyone who thinks they should go to med school, I urge you to stay away. Not having a family, not having a hobby, barely being able to afford luxuries, being constantly sleep deprived is the norm among doctors. Only a few specialties live in glamour.

  • Entrepreneurship should not stop at a career and that’s what people don’t understand! Especially passive income. Follow your dreams!

  • great i like your videos doc, you indeed motivate people. i send some videos to friends who want to study medicine but are still in doubt. i myself finished now medical school and will pursue a career in basic research. in neurooncology, but later i would also like to continue with the clinic, i.e. starting a residency

  • I clicked on this video because I recognized the Powtoon software, and just wanted to say your presentation is fantastic! I’ve made several powtoons for class presentations, but yours is super professional and extremely well made.

  • Never had I seen nurses page doctors for no reason. There is no enjoyment in calling physicians. Honestly, being nice to a nurse shouldn’t just be because of the benefits you listed, isn’t it just common human decency to be nice to others? It boggles my mind to see physicians talk to nurses with such disrespect. Are nurses not people? Will you only care and be nice when the person is a patient? Nurses, PAs, janitors, or anyone in the hospital are people that one day becomes a patient, will you throw things at them and yell at them the same way then?

  • Im in my senior year of high school and I want to be a doctor but my drawback is that I’m very bad at chemistry,so is there a lot I need to know in med school?how deep does it go? I’m interested in becoming a ER doctor

  • woooow Shreveport, Louisiana! Me too! That’s so crazy to me but growth & hard work is so amazing!! I’m working on my bachelors in TX now ��

  • Thanks for the insight, doc! Keep them coming. I’m actually a last year med student and in 3 months I have to decide which residency to start. Ortho has been with radiology up there as top choices for me. But seeing some of your videos, I was reminded me of how ortho can give the patiens (and the sugeon) these amazing/hands on/ palpable results and i just can’t wait to start my residency in this field.

  • Hey Dr Jude, is robot assisted TKR popular in Canada and UK? Or do they do it the old school way? How is the scope of robotics and where is the best place to apply for a fellowship?
