Episode 68: The Stress of Medical School

Becoming a doctor isn’t easy, and for radiology resident, Lane Miner, the stress could be overwhelming at times. During his second year of medical school, Lane experienced his first panic attack. And more would follow. He was forced to take a journey of self discovery and struggle, where he gained gifts that he now extends to others. Not only has Lane helped me get through some of my own mental health journey, he has gained an increased empathy for all who struggle, which translates to him becoming one of the most compassionate physicians and people that I know.
