2017 BRI Leadership Conference in Saint Louis, MO
February 2, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - February 5, 2017 @ 12:00 pmFree
Doctors are called upon to treat the sickest of the sick, often in conditions that demand the most of the strongest human beings. Yet, even in America with some of the best medical conditions in the world, doctors are still called upon to serve, heal, and respond—over and over again—usually with no thought for their own well-being, endurance, or limitations.
Medical students are also found in similar situations: forced to the brink of their mental, emotional, and physical capacity, to study, learn and perform on cue . . . and they do this because they want to serve people.
So, how do we take care of our doctors and medical students? Based on the sheer number of healthcare professionals who drop out of school, out of their practices, or —worse yet, out of life itself through suicide—the answer is: not well at all.
Besides the vast medical knowledge doctors and medical student must learn and retain, there is the new additional burden of onerous government regulation, sapping autonomy and joy from the medical profession. We say, it’s time to heal our healers, and the best way to do that is to protect one of the most sacred relationships: that of patient and doctor. When doctors are free to practice, to make choices that serve them and their patients rather than bureaucracy, and take action in the best interest of their patients, they in turn are the most fulfilled and happy.
At the Benjamin Rush Institute annual student leadership conference, we will present concrete, workable and proven ways to improve healthcare for all, and above all, heal our healers through the patient-doctor relationship.
