“Physician heal thyself.”
But what happens
when depression convinces you you’re not worthy of healing?
Doctors and other healthcare professionals face uniquely stressful situations during their education, training and careers.
Sleep deprivation, invincibility myths and routinely witnessing human suffering can contribute to or trigger depression.
In this episode, Dr. Michael Weinstein, a trauma surgeon, candidly and vulnerably discusses his depression,
the “revolution” needed in medical training, and his long road to recovery.
This remix is the first of a 2-part interview with the doctor.
