A Physician’s Wellness Journey
Dealing with countless demands each day is an integral part of the physician’s routine. But what happens when this routine becomes ingrained and becomes too much to handle? There is no doubt that burnout is a pervasive part of culture among physicians, but do you have the skills to effectively manage it?
