Sasha Shillcutt, MD, MS, FASE, co-hosted another installment of our #PWChat series, on May 9, which focused on physician wellbeing and handling burnout.

Topics discussed included whether messages of awareness & calls to action regarding physician suicide should be welcome in organized medicine, what can be done to change the culture of “work harder and longer” in medicine, which is largely accepted as largely contributing to physician burnout and, in turn, mental illness and suicide, what impact(s) should be expected from the moves of some organizations, such as Stanford Medicine, to appoint physician leaders to lead teams that address micro and macro level burnout, and much more!

Below are the highlights from the chat. You can read the full transcript here, by scrolling down to the corresponding responses.
