From Physician Burnout To Mindful M.d.

Physician shortage spurs universities to try to attract students to health care

Current headlines in the press highlight mindful living, meditation and yoga daily. Earlier this month, I was at a global marketing firm speaking as an expert on mindful living as a top trend for 2014 and beyond. Mindfulness-based practices are not just a hobby for our free time or just a marketing trend. It is a way of living that can prevent or even heal career burnout. What if I had realized this earlier in my career as a physician? When I started on my journey of mindful living, I was either labeled crazy or a visionary physician. In a highly-publicized study from the Annals of Family Medicine, researchers at Meriter Medical Group in Madison, Wisc. taught physicians simple mindful meditation techniques. These mindful breathing techniques were used to help physicians feel centered and more present with each patient interaction. Results showed decreased symptoms of burnout, stress, depression and anxiety. I would love to start a mindful discussion together. What can we do together as a community to bridge medicine and mindfulness to prevent career burnout? We can start by taking a moment to close our eyes, take a deep inhale, and take a deep exhale. Just breathe and come into the present moment. This is mindfulness.
