This week we're joined by Chris Sheu, MD. Dr. Sheu is a sports medicine surgeon at Skagit Regional Health in Mount Vernon, WA. We reminisce about residency, discuss the transition to fellowship and being a junior attending, adapting to new techniques, growing up in Sugar Land, TX (a hotbed for medical professionals), and, of course, weight lifting.
