Confessions of a Surgeon

Aug 3, 2013

Few careers are more lucrative and resistant to being offshored or automated than surgeon. But what is it really like to be a surgeon? On the Oct. 20, 2013 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I'll discuss that with Dr. Paul Ruggieri, author of a wonderfully candid book, Confessions of a Surgeon.

In the second half of the show you can call in for a 3-Minute Workover. I'll try to help you solve the career conundrum you or someone you love is facing.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Sunday from 11 AM to noon on KALW, 91.7 FM in San Francisco and worldwide on The podcast is available for a week on the NPR site and in perpetuity on this page.
