Janae Sharp and Dalton Ruer discuss the culture of med school, learning about new tech and how both affect burnout and the decision to enter the field.
This is part two of a three-part podcast. Listen to part one here.
The medical school process is rigorous. Students who typically excel in school are faced with even more work and hours of being out in the field. The addition of technology in healthcare presents a new challenge for young professionals, who might not have had the time to learn how to use them. Although these innovations were made to improve efficiency, outcomes and patient satisfaction, they can also lead to burnout. And sometimes, the pressure and fear of potential burnout turns people away from entering the field, which could lead to an even worse provider shortage.
Janae Sharp, founder of Sharp Index, a nonprofit dedicated to reducing physician suicide and burnout, and Dalton Ruer, a data scientist storyteller, are back on Data Book for part two of a special three-part series about physician burnout.
In part two, we discuss the culture of med school, how med school can better prepare young physicians to use new technologies and if a fear of burnout is keeping young professionals from pursuing a career in medicine.
