Face Forward: Navigating as a Young Surgeon

Last month, I interviewed Dr. Peter Vila, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, on this podcast. Discover his insights from our discussion and learn how he took a risk in his career by moving into private practice instead of academics. For younger surgeons, this can be overwhelming to decide right after fellowship.

Dr. Vila shares his thoughts on taking risks early on in your career. Furthermore, he emphasizes staying connected within his network.

A piece of wisdom from this podcast is to realize, "The pearl behind this experience is the substance that is there, and those who you are working with." It's best to keep your head up during the process and join someone that you can trust.
