PODCAST: Really Rural Surgery with Dr. Bret Batchelor

Dr Bret Batchelor is a Canadian GP working in rural British Columbia.  He is also a part-time surgeon practicing his “Extended Surgical Skills” in a small town.

Over the last year Bret has been podcasting at “Really Rural Surgery“.  The podcast is a heavily evidence-based look at the practice of Surgery & procedural Obstetrics with a focus on doing common procedures in the small towns.  There is a strong flavour of “medical myth busting” which we love!

Bret was kind enough to spend half an hour chatting with me about his practice, the ethos of rural procedural work and how to train in the field.

Bret is on Twitter @ReallyRuralSurg  – he is a super smart guy and keen to spread the word – so ask him some questions and send some comments to the site.  Are there any questions you want answered about everyday Surgery?
