Episode Description

Doctors are dropping like flies these days. Indeed, at least one doctor commits suicide every single day in America! And these are more likely the better doctors - those who have become depressed and disillusioned by the changes in medicine that have turned them into hamsters on a treadmill-to-nowhere but burnout! Today's guest, Michael F Myers, M.D., a 'doctor's doctor', has devoted himself to preventing this downward spiral in his own patients and in preventing physician suicide in general. His latest book is Why Physicians Die By Suicide: Lessons Learned From Their Families and Others Who Cared. Hear the most common reasons why doctors kills themselves and the most common emotions felt by those they leave behind.
