Play • 1 hr 38 min

Welcome to EveltrakSport.com's new coaching podcast, EvelChat! In this first episode of EvelChat, Derek sits down for a one to one talk with Dr. Scott Samlan. Dr. Samlan is an emergency room physician and CEO of North West Indiana ER & Hospital. There he has been one of the front-line workers in the fight against Covid-19 for the past 6 months. 

Before that however, for 15 years he was an ER physician and Regional Director for a number of inner-city hospitals in Chicago, dealing with some of the hairiest, most professionally challenging experiences a doctor can face.

Derek and Scott discuss a number of issues around ER medicine and the crossover to coaching, including: what it's like to be an ER doctor and NW Indiana Hospital's unique approach to patient care, COVID-19, the second time they met, working within a bureaucracy, the personality types that get attracted to ER medicine (and coaching), high-stress management and the impact such "lifestyle" work has on their families.
