Practical Stress Management Tools for Physicians

Physicians have a dream of being the perfect doctor, saving lives, curing illness, stomping out disease. This dream encompasses their private life too, as they strive to be the perfect partner and parent. Physicians try to be all things to all people. In so doing, their personal needs are last, and often lost.
This book will help you discover:
  • Why doctors become stressed, and why they can't stop
  • How to identify the early warning signs of stress in medicine
  • How to recognize burnout and know when it's happening to you
  • How to achieve a balanced personal and professional life
  • How to stay in medicine and enjoy it.
