Dr. Danielle Ofri, “Surviving Medicine in the 21st Century”
About the Talk: Disillusionment in medicine feels like it is reaching epidemic proportions. Doctors say they would never choose the field if they had to do it all over again. Medical error and burnout seem to be everywhere. But it might be too soon to close the book on the medical profession. This presentation examines the impact of disillusionment, highlighting strategies for re-engaging doctors, combating burnout, and thriving in the new era of medicine.
