Physicians in Transition: Doctors Who Successfully Reinvented Themselves


Physicians in Transition: Doctors Who Successfully Reinvented Themselves
by Drs. Richard Fernandez and Michelle Mudge-Riley

This is more than a book about physicians in transition, it is a book about remarkable people who have overcome obstacles in the pursuit of personal happiness and career satisfaction. Most physicians entered the medical field believing that sacrifices were inevitable but that the hard work and dedication would lead to a successful and satisfying career. Most people think the term "physician" implies the ultimate professional career choice. Why aren't physicians happy? What obstacles prevent them from this personal and career fulfillment? For some physicians, the stress levels have progressed to the point of exhaustion and fatigue and in more severe cases, substance abuse or severe depression. This book will introduce you to individual doctors who felt lost, trapped, exhausted, sick, guilty, frightened and an array of other emotions. These doctors may not have understood the feelings or the root cause of the problem but they faced it head on, got through it and overcame the feelings.
