The Good-Hearted Physician: Flourishing as a Twenty-First Century Physician

May 01 - 06, 2016 Begins in 2 months
with Jim Duffy & Alejandro Chaoul

The practice of medicine has never been easy. However, the twenty-first-century physician faces extraordinary challenges. Rapid and uncertain changes in the healthcare system combined with an avalanche of scientific data and shifting patient expectations are reshaping the practice of medicine. The impact of these changes upon physician well-being is reflected in increasing rates of professional dissatisfaction, burnout, depression, and even suicide among physicians.
