There are quite a few misconceptions about long term care and geriatric medicine. Many young physicians shy away from long term care medicine because they fear they won't be able to make enough money, or that they will burn out quickly. But Dr. Gregory Zydiak, medical director of a skilled nursing facility in Saint Louis, thinks the opposite is true. He believes long-term care medicine is a fruitful, rewarding and challenging career. Dr. Zydiak created a practical guide for a career in long-term care medicine, available here. Dr. Eric Tangalos hosts.
