Mayo Clinic Talks: Healthcare Professional Burnout: Contributors, Consequences and Solutions

Available until February 1, 2026

The practice of medicine is often stressful and at times, even frustrating. Sometimes the stress and frustration can get out of hand and lead us to feeling overwhelmed and hopeless. This has been described as burnout. There’s good evidence to suggest that well over half of all physicians practicing in the U.S. have exhibited some symptoms of burnout at some time during their career. Healthcare professional burnout not only has negative consequences for the clinician, but also for patients, as patient care can often suffer. What are the symptoms of burnout, can we prevent them and how can we manage those who are experiencing professional burnout? We’ll discuss these questions and more with Colin P. West, M.D., Ph.D., an internist in the Division of General Internal Medicine at the Mayo Clinic.

Mayo Clinic Talks: HIV & Attitudes Towards PrEP

Available until February 1, 2026

As primary care providers, evaluating patients with a virus is a common part of our practice. This ranges from colds, a painful shingles outbreak, COVID-19, RSV bronchiolitis, influenza, and many more. Oftentimes, after a detailed physical exam, we tell our patients the cause of their symptoms are due to a virus and that their symptoms should improve in a couple days to weeks. However, we know that sometimes the symptoms of a viral infection can be a harbinger of more severe disease. In today’s talk, we will be discussing a virus. Acute infection with this virus can present with fever, fatigue, myalgias, arthralgias, lymphadenopathy, sore throat, headache, diarrhea, weight loss, and rash. This constellation of symptoms, especially when they persist for a prolonged duration of time can be representative of an acute HIV infection. Tune in to this episode to learn more about the pathophysiology of HIV, how a patient can contract HIV, the tests to perform when an acute HIV infection is suspected, how to prevent an HIV infection, and also to learn a bit more about anal Pap smears.

Mayo Clinic Talks: LGBTQIA+ Health for Primary Care

Available until February 1, 2026

Individuals who belong to the LGBTQIA+ population are a part of the communities we provide care. Every member of this group is unique, and recognizing how sexual orientation and gender identity influences each person, including how these concepts may evolve and change over a life span, can help us provide more inclusive and whole person care. Many members of the LGBTQIA+ population either do not have access to, or do not seek quality medical care due to stigma and discrimination, which then leads to many disparities. By learning how to provide culturally sensitive care, we can help reduce healthcare disparities for LGBTQIA+ folks. Tune in to this episode to learn more about the LGBTQIA+ community, some of the disparities the community faces, and learn about some special considerations that may arise in your care of the LGBTQIA+ patient.

Mayo Clinic Talks: Liver Transplant Selection Criteria

Available until February 1, 2026

The liver is the second most commonly transplanted organ; nearly 10,000 patients received a liver transplant in 2021. The major factor, which has limited the transplants performed, has been the availability of the donated organs and some patients have waited several years before an acceptable organ becomes available. Transplants can be performed for a variety of end-stage liver diseases, usually giving patients years of additional life. Who’s a candidate for a liver transplant and what criteria for selection are required? Our topic for this podcast is “Liver Transplant Selection Criteria” and we’ll discuss this topic with our guest, Michael D. Leise, M.D., from the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the Mayo Clinic.

Mayo Clinic Talks: Management of Patients with Late-Stage Dementia: A Caring Hand

Available until February 1, 2026

Dementia is a devastating health condition for patients, their families, and a challenging disease for primary care providers. Whereas the diagnosis is usually straightforward to establish, the pharmacologic treatment options have been, at best, disappointing. With little to nothing to offer our patients which would improve their cognitive status; our responsibility for their management doesn’t end there. We still have a responsibility to provide ongoing care to these patients as well as their caregivers as they progress into the later stages of dementia. This brings up numerous management challenges including maintaining our patient’s independence, as well as numerous safety and nutrition issues. This podcast will review the management of the patient with later stage dementia with our guest is Mairead M. Bartley, M.B., B.Ch., B.A.O., a geriatrician and internist in the Division of Community Medicine at the Mayo Clinic.

The disease can be very frightening, often debilitating, and progressive; up until recently, we’ve had very little to offer patients in the way of treatment. However, in the past few years there have been numerous advances in treatment options which have given hope to the many patients with MS. We’ll be discussing multiple sclerosis in this podcast.

Mayo Clinic Talks: Nutrition History Taking: A Practical Approach

Available until February 1, 2026

Nutrition is so important to our health. What and how much we eat can help keep us healthy or increase our risk of developing a number of health problems including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, malignancy or a variety of degenerative health conditions. Unfortunately, many of our patients obtain their information regarding nutrition from the media which is often very inaccurate. It’s our responsibility as primary care providers to assess our patients’ nutritional status and give them accurate recommendations regarding dietary changes they should make in order to remain healthy. This starts with a nutritional history. Yet very few of us have had any formal education in nutrition. How do we take a nutritional history? What are the important questions to ask? We’ll discuss this and other nutritional issues with our guest for this podcast, Tara Schmidt, M.Ed, RDN, LD, a registered dietician at the Mayo Clinic.

Mayo Clinic Talks: Post Transplant Kidney Care for Local Physicians

Available until February 1, 2026

Kidney transplants are quite common; over 20,000 transplants will have been performed by the end of 2022 and there are currently just under 90,000 individuals on the national transplant waiting list. They’ve been remarkably successful in giving patients with renal failure an improved quality of life. However, patients who have had kidney transplants have unique medical needs. Since most transplant patients will return to their primary care providers for the majority of their ongoing care, what important information do we need to successfully care for these patients? What unique medical needs do they have? And what potential health problems are more commonly seen in transplant patients? In this podcast, our guest, Samy M. Riad, M.D., a nephrologist at the Mayo Clinic will answer these questions and more as we discuss the management of the post-renal transplant patient.

Mayo Clinic Talks: Pulmonary Function Testing

Available until February 1, 2026

Pulmonary function tests are extremely useful in both diagnosing and managing patients with respiratory disease. In addition to a medical history, physical exam and imaging studies, they give us a great deal of information of the pulmonary physiology and help us understand why patients have various respiratory symptoms. However, there are quite a number of pulmonary function tests available to us and which tests we should order can be confusing. Do we know when spirometry, lung volumes or diffusion capacity will be useful for evaluating the various pulmonary conditions? Our guest for this podcast is Dr. Alexander Niven, from the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the Mayo Clinic and he’ll provide answers to these questions and more as we discuss “How to Use Pulmonary Function Tests Effectively”.

Mayo Clinic Talks: Testosterone Supplementation in Men: Risks, Benefits, and Best Practices

Available until February 1, 2026

Testosterone has a variety of health benefits. It helps maintain bone density, muscle mass, red blood cell production and sexual function. Testosterone levels in men tend to peak between age 30 to 40 then gradually decline and it’s not unusual to find low testosterone levels in men over the age of 50. It’s also known that in men with hypogonadism, testosterone supplementation can improve libido, bone density and muscle mass. Should we be checking testosterone levels in our middle-age male patients? How do we determine who should receive testosterone supplementation and finally what are the risks of supplementation? In this podcast, these are all questions I’ll be asking our guest, Dr. Nahid Punjani, a urologist at the Mayo Clinic as we discuss “Testosterone Supplementation in Men”.
