Dr Ian Williams is a physician, comic artist and writer and on completion of his medical training went on to do further studies in Fine Art and Medical Humanities. He is a co-founder of GraphicMedicine.org which explores all that is artistic in in medicine and is also the author of the recent graphic novel 'Bad Doctor'. He is also the co-author of the 'Graphic Medicine Manifesto' which has been nominated for an Isner award. 

In addition to his work as an artist, Ian shines a light on mental health in physicians and indeed his own struggles with OCD during the early part of his training. This was a thoroughly enjoyable conversation on such a broad range of topics from the humanities to mountain rescue in Wales.
