This #BeyondClinicalMedicine podcast addresses the very real issue of clinician burnout and suicide with a physician who has personal experience dealing with its tragic consequences.
Dr. Kip Wenger, Regional Performance Medical Director for TeamHealth, shares a very personal and powerful story with Dr. Robert Strauss about physician burnout and how we in the medical community can recognize the warning signs, use available resources to help, and support each other better. Please listen, share and remember it’s ok to speak up and ask for help if you are suffering from burnout.
