Zubin Damania Career

From 2003 to 2012, Damania was a hospitalist at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation, spending 70% of his time at Stanford University Hospital (where he was an Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine) and 30% of his time at Washington Hospital in Fremont, California, and receiving the Russell Lee Award for Clinical Teaching.

He also performed stand-up comedy for medical audiences around the world as a side pastime.

The traditional fee-for-service basis on which the American medical system is based discouraged Damania, who became increasingly dissatisfied with his employment.

With the encouragement of Tony Hsieh, the CEO of Zappos.com, Damania began writing, performing, and filming musical parodies about the frustrations of working as a doctor. Upon uploading them to YouTube, they gained instant popularity.

He created the persona of ZDoggMD, a gangsta rapper outraged by common misconceptions about healthcare in the United States.
