Dr Mehra does not frame his experiences as failures or successes; he looks at all events with one question in mind: What can I learn from this?
In this week’s episode Ankur’s guest is Dr Mandeep R Mehra, Medical Director of Brigham Heart and Vascular Center and Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.

Dr Mehra’s professional journey started in the Sevagaram Ashram in India where medicine and the Gandhian way of life were both instilled in him. His career in the US was prompted by a question posed by a neuroscientist, Sister Elizabeth Burns: “Have you ever thought about the scalability of your impact?” In this reflective and personal conversation Mandeep talks about the choices he made during his career and the people who shaped him. Ankur asks Mandeep about his editorship at the Journal of Heart and Lung Transplantation and Mandeep shares his thoughts on selecting priorities, and the importance of living in the present moment.

How does Dr Mehra think about building opportunities? What were his formative experiences? How does he think about the role of mentorship in medicine? What is Dr Mehra’s message to our listeners?

Questions and comments can be sent to “podcast@radciffe-group.com” and may be answered by Ankur in the next episode. Guest @MRMehraMD, hosted by @AnkurKalraMD. Produced by @RadcliffeCARDIO.
