The modern healthcare system leaves doctors living out of balance, spending more time on the computer than taking care of patients, and struggling to turn off their busy minds and be present when home with loved ones. Long hours, endless bureaucracy, and profits prioritized over patient and clinician well-being strip autonomy from the healthcare workforce and induce the paralyzing anguish of self-doubt and burnout. Quitting medicine feels like the only option-how else can you reclaim the happiness and career satisfaction you find is held hostage by a broken healthcare system?

Dr. Gazelle provides physicians, nurses, and other healthcare workers with a real pathway toward enjoying the careers they've worked so hard for in spite of the dysfunction around them-and it starts with managing their most important instrument (the mind). Drawing on her experience coaching hundreds of physicians and the latest in neuroscience research, Dr. Gazelle equips readers to step out of the spiraling thoughts and emotions of burnout and into a place of autonomy and calm. Clear and down to earth, Mindful MD gives readers the tools they need to enjoy the careers they've earned and break free from burnout.
