Healing takes a team, beyond the white coat.

In my podcast, I talk to interdisciplinary professionals within the clinical space. With my guests, I discuss healing, end-of-life, and what it is that makes these professionals wake up every morning wanting to care for others.

Annika Divakar, MD, MA (2023)

Host & Producer

I am an incoming general surgery resident physician to the Boston Medical Center. During my medical training at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, I simultaneously obtained a Master of Arts in the Medical Humanities and Bioethics.

Throughout my training, I have been privileged to cross paths with incredible people of all career paths, passions, and life experiences. To tell their stories is to shed an important light on a diverse array of professions in the hospital, some of which are overshadowed.

I hope my podcast allows patients, providers, and podcast-lovers alike to learn about something - and someone - new.
