Stop Physician Burnout: 3 Things Men Must Stop Doing to Decrease Unconscious Gender Bias in the Healthcare Workplace

Two surveys in the last three years show a remarkable transformation of the US physician population. 

  • In 2019 the majority of US medical students are women for the first time. (1)
  • Athena health surveyed 3500 of their client practices in 2017 and found 60% of physicians 35 or younger are women. (2)
  • In 2022 53.8% of medical students are women (3)

With this gender shift in full swing, you would think unconscious gender bias against women would be rolling towards extinction ... right? Not so in my experience (and yours too I suspect).

Life lessons You can learn from My Stroke

Posted by Dike Drummond MD

It's been a month since my stroke - a reality-altering  shot across my bow by the grim reaper himself.

My recovery?

Physically I have some very mild left hand  and left leg weakness

Congnitively I am back to normal and perhaps even better than before in some ways.

The big change is in my heart, my spirit and my moment-to-moment perceptions of reality and priority.


This brush with mortality - no one gets out of here alive, remember? - has placed a shimmer on all my senses and the scent of gratitude on every waking experience.

Physician Leadership and Trust

Posted by Dike Drummond MD

For true leaders,
TRUST comes before all else.
Any action you take
or word you speak or write
that destroys trust
destroys your people's willingness to be lead by you.

A Double New Year Wish for You and your Practice in 2024

Posted by Dike Drummond MD

I had a stroke ten days ago.

It was a miracle that the interventional neuro team was in the hospital at 3:30 AM and sucked the clot out of my middle cerebral artery in time.

 

These days I scuff my left foot a little more than my right and my left pinkie does not hit the "A" key with the same precision and I fully acknowledge I am one darn lucky fella.

And my attitude?

This brushback pitch from the grim reaper has doubled my dedication to my personal mission.

The Physician Identity Trap

Posted by Dike Drummond MD

PHYSICIANS: I urge you do not conflate your career and your identity.

You are not your job / practice.

The conditions of your employment and your response/reaction to them are lessons learned.

You make the meaning in those experiences and are able to stay or walk away.

Don't fall victim to this fusion and give in to despair.
