"A NEW DOCTOR'S EMOTIONAL ARMOUR WHILE ON DUTY" BY ISOBEL ROSENTHAL

About this Event

The number of physicians suffering from burnout has increased in the last few years, but the problem doesn’t stop with physicians—medical student burnout is also on the rise. A study conducted by the AMA and Rand Corporation revealed 45 percent of the medical students surveyed were feeling the effects of burnout.

So what can medical students and other health care providers do to prevent burnout?

Join a discussion on vicarious trauma, also known as compassion fatigue or secondary traumatic stress. The conversation will be based on a recent Washington Post article by Isobel Rosenthal, MD, titled, "A New Doctor's Emotional Armour While on Duty."

This presentation is part of the 2nd Annual Medical Symposium on Human Trafficking scheduled for February 4 - 8, 2020. For the complete list of class offerings, please visit: ImPACT Virginia. The Symposium is free and open to the public.
