Written to Help Physicians Love Medicine Again!
Every day, doctors and other healthcare professionals struggle with the constraints and demands of our healthcare system. They report record levels of burnout and stress. Yet changes in our healthcare laws will only continue to ensure a rise in the number of patients seeking care. We face a true crisis. In Remedy For Burnout: 7 Prescriptions Doctors Use to Find Meaning in Medicine, Dr. Starla Fitch shares her own story of burnout and guides other physicians to rediscover their passion for medicine.
Remedy For Burnout provides doctors with seven “prescriptions” they can take to reconnect with the reasons they became doctors. By following Dr. Fitch’s prescriptions in Remedy For Burnout, physicians will reconnect with medicine again and resume fulfilling careers.
When Dr. Fitch began her career as an oculoplastic surgeon, she did so to save the sight of her patients not battle endless bureaucracy. Navigating the healthcare system wore her down. Dr. Fitch knew she had to find a way to reconnect with the reasons she became a physician and become passionate about her work once more. Knowing many of her fellow doctors experience the same burnout, Dr. Fitch created www.LoveMedicineAgain.com and wrote Remedy For Burnout to help doctors everywhere restore humanity to health care and physician burnout treatment.

"Underneath every burned-out physician lies the heart of a healer. Yet many doctors have forgotten the call to medicine that drew them, like priests are called to the priesthood, into the practice of medicine. Like yoga or meditation, medicine is a practice, and yet, many have lost touch with this underlying touchstone. In Remedy for Burnout: 7 Prescriptions Doctors Use to Find Meaning in Medicine, Dr. Starla Fitch offers medicine for the soul to help her fellow physicians reconnect with what matters in health care."

"For many physicians, the magical intimacy of the doctor-patient relationship is little more than a distant memory. For all this, however, there is a way out. In this eminently hopeful, personal, down-to-earth book, Dr. Starla Fitch shares what has worked for her. This is a report from the front, from a medical insider who’s been in the trenches and knows how to speak from her heart. Remedy for Burnout: 7 Prescriptions Doctors Use to Find Meaning in Medicine is really a hero’s journey – a report from one who has braved challenging experiences and returns to share lessons learned. I cannot imagine a physician who would not benefit from this book."
