With 98% of course attendees rating John Higgins, MD, good, very good, or excellent at our March Internal Medicine Board Review Conference this year, we had to get some of his tips. We picked his brain about how much fun he has at MedStudy Courses and his resiliency tips for other physicians.
Dr. Higgins has been working with MedStudy since 2012 and has used his extensive cardiology knowledge in projects like the Core, Audio Pearls, Q&As, and of course, has been a speaker for our Courses and Video Board Reviews over the years.
He completed medical school at the University of Queensland, residency at University of Missouri, then his fellowship at Brigham and Women's Hospital. He's now the Chief of Cardiology at Lyndon B. Johnson General Hospital.

Do you have any resiliency tips?
Physically leave the office for breaks. Get outside, walk, soak in some sun, and stretch. Getting away from devices and computers can be a great recharger and relaxer while keeping you active.
Take a 5 minute break every 25 mins, exercise every day, eat healthy, and get 7-9 hours sleep every night.
