Physician Burnout & The Vanishing Oath

I just finished watching The Vanishing Oath by Ryan Flesher, MD, an Emergency Physician who explores physician burnout in this documentary film.

The Vanishing Oath is one of those films that every physician should see.  My wife and I watched it together tonight and found ourselves nodding in agreement during many segments.  On more than one occasion my wife turned to me and said, "that sounds just like you!"

I'd like to discuss the issue of physician burnout in more depth in later posts-- and I have already posted a few articles on this subject-- but suffice it to say that I believe physician burnout is a huge issue in the US and will only grow larger in the coming years.  

Ryan's film struck a nerve with me, and policy makers should take heed to the story contained in this presentation.  You can read more about Ryan's work on his website, CrashCartProductions.com , or look for his future posts here on FreelanceMD.  Ryan has agreed to join our authors and we're excited to have him on board.

Not so bad. You could be practicing in France.
