Thank for thirty years, which is like doctor who is this kind of like the one in. Get your like your law degree or your your your license. And then you've got to keep learning to do. We're we're again, we're we're getting ahead of ourselves. What kind of doctor are you? So I work as a bone marrow transplant doctor at university of Louisville here at the Brown cancer center. I take care of the leukemia. Lymphoma patients as well as my Lomo. You are up for the leukemia lymphoma foundation's man of the year, you're working towards that. That's true. Working on these. What happens is they he's you're not a fundraiser. Nope. What? What the hell you're doing? This is how I met this guy to another person that I know and the second he sat down we met it while eggs, and we talked about because I I heard that desperation in the question like, what are we doing here? Can you give me some pointers and we sat down and like an hour away by like that? And you're so excited to try to help raise money for the leukemia lymphoma society, Dwight, and you know, that they do such great. Well, my gosh, they did tremendous work in. They're actually making strides tremendous progress with leukemia. I wanna talk about you personally for minute though, going through medical. Here's what I've never understood when you're going through your residency in med school. They always have you working like three days straight now break and then four days straight while I do that. I mean, it's just a mess with is almost like a boot camp in the in the military, just breaking you down. So that is true. They used to do that pass the used to have. These like, you know, long hours where you have to stay in the hospital for thirty our straights for a call and post call all this. But I think since the start of my training around the year two thousand I think so the e c g me, which is that holding organization for training medical training said. Well, those people are working too hard. We've gotta have restrictions right? Can't work more than like eighteen sixteen hours of things trade they have to have a day off per week. They some good advice. Think if you're going to have a timeframe on truck drivers have probably have a tug timeframe on people that are pushing Zik digital tell you know, there is it positive negative to that very important is that you also like you need to be during your training in this continuum. You want to see the patient coming get treated well out, some consistency with individual patient care, you know, and that might have gotten a little bit interrupted by these restrictions. You have to you can't actually now, you know, by just the regulation pay in the hospital for those amounts of hours. But it's very important because you see all these burn out and people like getting really tired right shore. To what you just said. He said they corrected the problem. Now, you can't work more than sixteen hours a day. And you get to get one day off a week. That's still sweatshop. But okay. So when you when you got in your field is leukemia. How hard is it to give someone that news? I mean, it's got to be so difficult, even as a physician tough news, the tough news when you have tough news deliver done just ripped apart. Only getting ready to do. It's definitely not an easy job deliver bad news. But at some point you you deliver a way that you can sincerely connect with patient yet. Now have that setting where you meet with a patient. Not just the patient himself. You always want to have the loved ones around them. And then you have to, you know, invite the patient to the how much does the patient one annot, you know, have to assess like how much do they know how much do they want to know encourage them about what you can do for that as you're delivering those type information, whether they get to you, doc, right? You're not a entry level if they're doing blood work in talking to you. They know something's wrong. Something has gone. Okay. Still if it progresses under your care the nets burden on you to say, hey, look, miss Abernathy your internet right there. So perfectly pointed out that sometimes bad news are not just doctors to patient's doctor patient is a continuous relationship. So you're right, Tony. Sometimes the patient comes to with the dog Noces sometimes the patient gets treated with you. And then the disease progress, that's bad news. Sometimes actually a doctor to a doctor. So the pathologist is calling you telling you bad news. Because connected with that patients, you consider that patient close. And then suddenly you're hearing. So there is an art to it. It's not just a straight forward. Look. Here's the news. Right. And you move on. No. It's not math or just give me the numbers. Do we do we all react to same way? Or is. There are there because I have a feeling that some people going. Okay. What am I gonna do tell you? What I go to step one. I'm going to fight this thing. I've got the gloves on let's go. I'm not gonna give up. We're gonna fight fight fight. And then there's others are like are crushed. They're not even paying attention to what you're saying hundred percent writers, so many ways of the people reacting to this. Sometimes they are very, you know, vigilant and keeping up actually keeping a pen and paper and writing down every word you're saying, and sometimes they are shaking their head listening to you. But they're actually in a different world is fun for people who aren't doctors to hang around doctors. Here. Here's what here's the way on vision. My brother-in-law's a doctor I had dinner with him last. Night. He's my doctor. So I'm passing on the brownies. I wanna eat that are people concerned about their behavior when you're around you think, well, I guess it depends on how much you know, them. So you're brother-in-law's talks her brother. The water and a half of a carrot stick. Not everybody has the guilt. Your carry around. Okay. Dr Muhammed you are from Egypt that's from Egypt Gordon there. I was born in Egypt than I grew up in the United Arab Emirates where do bias do. They do. They use pyramids in this face for like a landmark you're getting directions. Hey, you need to go. Three pyramids. This. What is his Dubai is? Just unbelievable as we think. Or is it all is a beautiful. An honestly, I gotta say I grew up there. I finished my school seventeen years ago. I haven't been there since. Okay. Okay. Fairbrother's? Imagine what it looks like that working. It's completely different. You know, the tallest building. Things they have you know, all the islands they built in the water. So it's an indoor snow skiing mountain that is in the desert. Yeah, it's gray. Okay. Good engineers there. So how long have you been doing this bone marrow transplants? So I actually finished my training last year from university of okay, did my Metallica on college training there and with a focus towards the end on the bone marrow transplant track. And I started my work as an assistant professor this past summer. How do people know that they're a match for transplant? Yes. So painful way to go. Oh, there's multiple ways. It's just the buckle swap to acute tip at the inside of your cheek and swap, and that's for if we are testing. Let's say I got diagnosed my brothers will be chat. Right. Because that's the best way. We have a matched brothers while there's a national registry. And I will use that as a kind of a little moment to at two is everybody encourage everybody. It's free. You can sign up and be matched. They will send you the kitchen. Swap inside. And then you send it they will build up. They have this independent registry. Where if anybody in the world needed a transplant, they will do the h God process, and then they would contact that match, and, you know, encourage everybody and more importantly, I encourage minorities because the majority of the of the registries silk, occasionally has the best chance while African Americans Hispanics natives Asians, their chances of finding a match is much lower compared to occasions. So we want more Caucasians we won't the minorities to to be more involved in this as well. Because you know, it makes the outcomes are much better. When you have a full match, you know compared to do and a half match for a relative. So you're thirty four your very handsome Kenya. Doctors saying there's no way you're single.

"Looking back. Now, it's like I've been in healthcare for almost twenty years now. So I know the patients rights and kind of things coming from a country where there was no patience rights. It was whatever the state said you can have. That's what happens so still a little bit that mentality is trust this trust. Yeah. And of course, you're scared. You're like what's going to happen? You know, our life's go up and down and I'm with him and my younger brother matched as well. So then what happens from there? So that time I said, well, okay. Let me go ahead and do the donations since I'm older and. I did the stem cells so put in central line, Kathy gave me e pigeon some medication that gave you for your body to hyper produce, these stem cells that your harvest at okay and those about a week and a half process of the of the shots. And then after that about another week, we can half of harvesting the cells today harvest it, and then we did donation for Benjamin. And in the middle of that. That's when it kind of had this pithy of while these people like really impact people's lives and touch them and their most difficult time crisis of their family. And we'll way remember they they're talking joking were they I mean, what was that? Like the healthcare by the things that I really liked. Appreciate about them. Is there is chaos all around? We don't know what's going on. They're very steadfast, very knowledge. -able? They're very honest with us about what's going on. But at same time, they're very compassionate. Like, we can help you guys this. We're willing to help the there's been successful transplants. And they just just growled us to help families stay together in the midst of all of this. So so you start at that point. Did you start thinking about what if a career in healthcare or was that still? Did you just appreciate what they were doing for you? It was it was right at that point where I. After I donated I went back to my guidance counselor. And I said, hey, you know, feel like I want to switch my major. And I told him said, it's versing.

But nursing I mean was that is that a still eight primarily female-dominated job or that time was it or, you know, the people think wait, wait, you can go be a doctor or you know, yet still was. It actually still. Okay. It's still I think like the numbers now are either twenty to twenty five percent male. Okay. It's growing now than it was before. But it it's interesting. It's typical that men overall go towards the high adrenaline high trauma or high word. Hi. Stimulate type environmental they'll go to the ER. They see us actually the ICU that work in the hospital work in Sutter health. We have five Icees and my ice you that. I'm stationed at is the medical is you. Medical generic issue? Okay. So so you're saying most guys than tend to go for that go for drill higher and higher trauma, higher stimulant type environment in our ICU the medical issue. I believe it's about thirty to forty percent male. Wow. Okay. Sometimes I'll come into work, and it's just like a list of guys seven guys working together. It's stuff in the ER as well. So I right now, I work in the medical ICU on the rapid response team on the represent team is associated with the whole hospital as well as with e r so we have a it's basically a team of professionals that do pre code assessment and diversion so that we don't get to place where patient actually codes in dies. Okay. That's end. This is a little again. I now you are here. I gotta ask questions voice went to ask an ER nurse ice universe win. Do you?.
