The Root Cause of Physician Burnout: Neither Professionals nor Skilled Workers

Too many specific theories about physician burnout can cloud the real issue and allow healthcare leaders to circle around the “elephant in the room”.

The cause of physician burnout isn’t just the EMRs, Meaningful Use, CMS regulations, the chronic disease epidemic or any other single item.

Instead, it is simply this: Healthcare today has no clear definition of what a physician is. We are more or less suddenly finding ourselves on a playing field, tackled and hollered at, without knowing what sport we are playing and what the rules are.

After Obamacare ruled unconstitutional, profit-driven critics risk our 1-year-old son’s life

Our son’s life could depend on the final outcome of a politically driven lawsuit that he’s too young to even know about. On Dec. 14, a federal judge in Texas ruled the entire Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act unconstitutional, potentially undoing the most positive step in American health care law in more than a generation.

Last year, when our son Vidar was born, he had several heart defects that required immediate surgery. At just five days old, doctors operated and successfully repaired his heart, but instead of recovering he ended up on life support.

3 black teens pushed each other to become doctors. Now they’re helping others do the same.

For people who don’t believe in God, suspend your disbelief for a moment.

Because I need to tell you about how three black boys from three different cities escaped dire circumstances, met at Xavier University in Louisiana and pledged to help each other become doctors.

They say God brought them together and kept them together until the last one had graduated medical school, until the last rotation was completed, until they opened their own practices. Now, they help pay to educate young men and women who look like them, to make sure they are not the last.
