Who: Rob Orman, MD is a certified executive coach who works with physicians to build resilience within their medical practices, deconstructing ideas and strategies to live and work with intent. 


He received his medical degree from Emory University and completed emergency medicine residency at Denver Health Medical Center, where he served as chief resident. Rob spent the next 20 years as a community emergency physician and now works full time as a medical educator and physician coach. 


A multiple award winning lecturer, Dr. Orman is the former chief editor and host of EM:RAP, creator of the Stimulus and ERcast podcasts, and is co-host of Essentials of Emergency Medicine, the largest single track EM conference in the world.  

Why this podcast: Regardless of your job title or description - doctor, nurse, EMS, firefighter, police, 911 operator - you get thrown into the fray with a basic set of medical skills. We receive little preparation, however, in how to thrive beyond managing disease or living up to the title on our ID badge.


Think about what spark motivated the decision for you to do what you do. Since making that decision, you’ve put too much into it to lose the calling and sense of purpose.  That spark is what drives this show. 

What: Stimulus deconstructs strategies to live and practice with intent so that we're not wasting our time (in both work and life). Don't just suck it up and grind your way. Think differently and tap into the joy.

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom. -Viktor Frankl
