Thanks for joining the maiden voyage of this webpage. My intent is to create an idea exchange and forum for discussing happiness and joy in medical work and the impact of clinical careers on personal life. Disclaimer: I am not a therapist. I am a cardiologist in first career and transitioned to real estate brokerage as my fulfillment/longevity/survival strategy. I’d like to hear yours.
This week’s New England Journal of Medicine (V320#4): feature article is about mental health screening in credentialing, certification and licensure for clinicians. Burnout and beyond is a hot topic and will become cash flowing, bureaucratic big business.
Doctors nationwide are burnt out and unsatisfied. Many want to quit the profession entirely, according to a new survey from the Physicians Foundation.
Are you motivated to take action, conflicted to the point of inertia, or paralyzed?
Happy New Year, colleague! David Reis MD
