It is said that the more you learn, the less you know. However according to Mikhail Varshavski, also known as the social media star "Doctor Mike", we have too many people who believe they know it all -- also referred to as "I Know All" (IKA) experts. In his passionate talk, Doctor Mike asks us to celebrate doctors who are self-aware and say "I don't know". He also draws the importance on asking the right questions and being aware of medical research limitations and conclusions. Dr. Mikhail Varshavski D.O., is a New York-based doctor focusing on family and preventative medicine. Better known as "Doctor Mike", he is a social media entrepreneur, philanthropist, and a doctor with purpose, stressing the importance of preventative medicine by highlighting his experiences through his unique journey. Doctor Mike started documenting his medical journey through his popular social media platforms to motivate students to pursue their medical training. Doctor Mike graduated from the New York Institute of Technology in 2014 with a B.S in Life Sciences and a Doctorate in Osteopathic Medicine via an accelerated 7-year track. On June 30, 2017, he completed his 3-year Family Medicine Residency at the Atlantic Health System-Overlook Medical Center in Summit, NJ. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
