Past episodes have featured physicians that have leveraged social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to grow their entrepreneurial ventures, but this week John is joined by Dr. Kevin Jubbal, M.D., a Doctor, and YouTube star. A few years ago Kevin started posting videos because he wanted to help struggling medical students. Now he has over a million subscribers to his channels dedicated to physician and student lifestyle content. On the podcast, Kevin shares why he chose to walk away from medicine and become a full-time entrepreneur, how his videos and websites help med students, and why his latest venture offers the most effective tool to learn and memorize high yield information for the MCAT.
Connect with Kevin on Med School Insiders and on his YouTube channel.
