I launched a new initiative last week!
When I talked to the amazing @Chip about it, he encouraged me to share it with this amazing community too.
For the last few years, we have been perplexed by the changes in medicine:
- burn out
- loss of autonomy
- loss of job security
- midlevel encroachment
- administrative burdens
- being devalued in the healthcare space
and the list goes on and on and on.
One day, I had an awakening.
For the first time, it occurred to me the amount of power we have together.
There are a million physicians in the US.
If we don’t like our experience in medicine, we can change it.
If we don’t like how we have to practice medicine, we can change it.
And the truth is many physicians have already started doing it.
I know it sometimes seems very bleak out there but there is an alternate reality for us!
The next day, I made a decision to start a podcast where I will feature all the physicians out there who are being the change they want to see.
I figured if physicians at every level, from residents to veterans could see examples every week of what is possible, we can take back control and change our experience in medicine.
Stop and think about it for a moment.
We can take back control, we can change the system, we can change our experience in medicine.
No individual can pull this off.
It will take me, you, and every other physician.
It will take a MOVEMENT.
I’m inviting you to join us.
It’s really simple, you just need to do a few things.
Listen to the podcast.
Take action on one thing you learn every week.
Share this with a colleague, an association, a residency program, etc.
Here’s to the beginning of a new age for physicians!
Let’s do it!
