Today’s guest is Dr. Neil Meehan, the Chief Physician Executive of Exeter Health Resources. Dr. Meehan is a board-certified Emergency Medicine physician, and was the driving force behind the creation of the New Hampshire Physician Leadership Development Program, a joint effort between the New Hampshire Medical Society, the New Hampshire Hospital Association, and the University of New Hampshire.

In this podcast we discuss Dr. Meehan’s own journey from living in a music studio above a peanut butter factory through medical school, residency, and his own development as a physician leader. We discuss in detail what the medical school and residency experiences are like because the New Hampshire Physician Leadership Development Program has a unique flavor based on Dr. Meehan’s own experience of medical training, as well as his observations about how physician training creates some specific challenges for physicians who want to transition from lead clinician to clinician-leader.

I have been part of the Physician Leadership program since its inception, so it was fun to talk with Neil and capture some of the stories and insight I have heard him share over the last few years.

This is the abridged version of the interview. In this version of the interview, I cut out our discussion of medical school and residency and what it is like to become a physician.
