“Physicians in training need to feel nourished, appreciated, heard, cared for..”
Dr Deepak Chopra is the Founder of the Chopra Center for Wellbeing, the author of more than 22 New York Times bestsellers and has trained in Internal Medicine and Endocrinology. He is best known for his alternative medicine practices and a global focus on well being. In addition to his work with The Chopra Foundation he is also an adjunct Professor of Executive Programs at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern and a Senior Scientist at the Gallup organization.
In this episode we deep dive into the struggles Dr Chopra faced during the early ‘melodramatic’ days as a resident, how smoking was ok at Grand Rounds and that in order to address the dissatisfaction of physicians in healthcare there needs to be a much greater emphasis placed on making sure trainees feel appreciated and heard. This was a fascinating conversation with one of the most well known physician figures of our time.
