Episode 70: Dr Brandon Nunnally
Brandon Nunnally is an Emergency Room Doctor.
In our conversation we discuss Brandon's med school experience - the insane amount of work required, the misconceptions that people have, and the type of people that succeed. He went to Randolph-Macon college for undergrad, then UVA for med school, and University of Pittsburgh for residency. He also tells us about his role as an ER Doc, including the physically intensive 12-hour shifts, how crucial it is to stay professional and calm in chaotic and emotional environments, and all the awesome supporting staff roles that keep the ER running like a well oiled machine. Finally, we talk about what COVID has changed in the ER setting, and Brandon addresses a question he gets a lot - whether he has ever been pressured to list COVID as a cause of death for his patients.
