This was the first interview in the new series of podcast interviews on health.
Mr Juan Antonio Torrecilla answered candidly to the questions asked about different aspects of his life and work, ranging from why he became a surgeon to what is his favourite guitarist. The interview will also reveal why Juan Antonio has the title of Mr and not Dr. After the interview he commented that this was his third public interview, and so far he has been interviewed in three different languages: Catalan, Spanish and now in English.
Thank you for listening and we hope that you have found the interview both informative and entertaining.
In short the text of the interview will be uploaded, where I will also comment on the language used.
The Medical English blog will begin a series of podcast interviews. The idea is to set up a regular interview section where we will interview doctors, nurses, health librarians, researchers, in fact all those working in the field of medicine. The interviews aim to present the “personal” side of those working within medicine, and we will try to discover what makes these professionals tick, what inspires them, what motivates them, what they enjoy or dislike about their work; a insider’s vision.
So, I am looking for volunteers, people who wish to share their experiences and give us a small insight into their lives as medical professionals. Obviously the interviews will take place in English, and as well as the interview I am going to upload the text so that it is a complete learning experience, and dare I say a learning experience on different levels.
This week will be the first week, and I expect to be interviewing a doctor from the Pneumology/ Thoracic surgery area in Son Espases Hospital.
