Learn how to manage burnout and restore joy and purpose to the practice of medicine
The need is critical. The Affordable Care Act is increasing access to healthcare. Ten thousand Baby Boomers are becoming seniors every single day. At the same time, the physician workforce is decreasing.
Consider these statistics:
1. 30% of primary care physicians ages 35-49 expect to leave healthcare.
2. 73% of physicians would not recommend the profession to their children.
3. Physicians are more likely than the general population to commit suicide.
