391: How To Build Resilience As Burned Out Healthcare Providers - With Dr. Gail Gazelle

47m | Jul 21, 2023

In Part Two of this discussion with Dr. Gail Gazelle, a physiclan burnout expert, we discuss Gail's experience with burnout. She shares examples from her own experience and those she's helped with to illustrate what burnout feels like and how it mirrors trauma reactions. She shares what helped her come back from burnout and what others can do to help with recovery. Burnout doesn't have to be a career-ending experience, it can be a transformational opportunity. Listen to this compassionate and down to earth conversation to understand why physicians are burning out, and how they can learn resiliency skills to help them stay in their careers, in this replay episode. This information will be relevant to anyone in a leadership position, even those who don't work in healthcare. 

Dr. Gazelle is a former hospice physician, part-time Harvard Medical School Assistant Professor, and a Master Certified Coach for physicians. After working in the field of end-of-life care for most of her professional career, Dr. Gazelle shifted her focus to another vulnerable population: physicians in the modern American healthcare system.
