Rapper, Internist ZDoggMD on the 'Hard Doc's Life'

 In this segment of Medscape One-on-One, Editor-in-Chief Eric J. Topol, MD, interviews Zubin Damania, MD, a practicing internist who uses musical parody as a clinical teaching tool and to bring attention to the concerns facing practicing clinicians. Performing under the name ZDoggMD, Dr Damania has used music to broach many topics from conveying the need for a more humane approach to end-of-life care to the frustrations of using a less-than-intuitive electronic health record (EHR) system.

After spending 10 years in the "Hard Doc's Life" working as a hospitalist in the Silicon Valley, he was lured to Las Vegas by Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh, a former classmate of Dr Damania's wife. There, Dr Damania founded Turntable Health as part of Mr Hsieh's $350 million investment to revitalize downtown Las Vegas.
