Episode 30: An International Perspective on Maine
In this episode of Tim Talk, Tim speaks with Maksim Liaukovich, MD, oncologist, Northern Light AR Gould, about what it is like to live and work in a place with a different culture and language. Dr. Liaukovich completed his medical schooling in Belarus and subsequently completed training in Ottawa, Canada. He later moved to Brooklyn, NY, where he completed his residency and fellowship in hematology and oncology. Both Tim and Dr. Liaukovich highlight the growing importance of cross-cultural teamwork in the workplace—our ability to work together with colleagues of all different backgrounds and to understand people from different cultures and engage with them respectfully toward a common goal of providing the best care possible.
