Combatting Healthcare Burnout: Mindfulness Rx for Doctors

BY: DR. ROBERT GRAHAM

I became a doctor to help people and to reduce their suffering. Not to see how many patients I could possibly squeeze into one day to “maximize my productivity.” Over 10 years as an integrative medicine physician, I’ve been keenly aware of the effects of stress, burnout, anxiety and depression among my patients, and I have taught and prescribed meditation, yoga and other stress reduction techniques to them.
