Miho Tanaka, MD, a sports medicine surgeon, was 11 years old when she knew that she wanted to become a doctor who treats athletes. As a former athlete herself, Dr. Tanaka routinely felt there was one thing lacking in her health care experience: a shared passion and motivation for a speedy return to the sports she loved.

In this episode of Charged, Dr. Tanaka talks about why she chose sports medicine, pursuing a career in a male-dominated field and the importance of research and education for athletes.
