The Missing Curriculum: How to Grow, Heal, and Thrive in the Practice of Medicine

How do physicians who are arguably one of the most dedicated, passionate, capable, and giving groups of people in the world feel so powerless and marginalized shaping our professional work experience? What can we do about it? In this podcast, Dr. Lauren Kosinski, the founder of Metamorphosis Medicine, recommends 4 cornerstones for reclaiming joy and fulfillment in the practice of medicine and is offering practices and instruction to help foster addressing them. At the conclusion of the podcast, the learner should have increased knowledge and be more competent to: 

  • Foster components that reclaim fulfillment in the practice of medicine
  • Recognize methods to address issues such as burnout and revitalize the physician practice experience

Dr. Lauren Kosinski is a subspecialty academic surgeon and founder of Metamorphosis Medicine. Her surgical experience spans general surgery solo practice in Alaska to subspecialty academic practice in colorectal surgery with a focus on complex rectal cancer management. For the last 6 years, she has turned her attention to healing the culture of medicine, understanding how half of practicing physicians have an occupational illness, and defining a role as a doctor’s doctor.

Disclosure: Dr. Kosinski did not report any financial relationships or conflicts of interest.
