Today’s guest is Dr. Jeffrey Fetter, the Chief Medical Officer for the New Hampshire State Hospital. Dr. Fetter is a board-certified physician in both internal medicine and psychiatry, and has spent his career caring for some of the most vulnerable patients in New Hampshire. The New Hampshire State Hospital is a secure, inpatient psychiatric hospital for patients with serious mental illness. In this podcast we talk about Dr. Fetter’s journey through medicine, including how he was sure the one specialty he would not do was psychiatry, to his previous roles as the chief medical officer for a community mental health clinic and chief medical officer for the New Hampshire state prison system. This is a great conversation about the practice of medicine, but also about the importance of physician leadership.
