    Dr Gregory Lewis, Why doctors don't do much good (and how you can do more), Jun 2015 [Panopto recording]

      Student led event. Dr Gregory Lewis from Giving What We Can explains why physicians generally make little difference, and suggests ways we can all, medics and non-medics alike, massively increase our impact. For those of us just starting our careers, or considering a change, he also discusses some evidence-based principles for selecting causes and jobs where we can do the most good, and introduces some organisations that can help us make those decisions.>

      This talk will be especially useful if you are considering career options (in any field), or already work in medicine, but will be of interest to anyone who wants to become more effective.
