Physician Burnout with Dr. Lara Hochman
Show Notes


Physician burnout is a growing concern in the medical community, affecting both doctors and healthcare professionals alike. This issue is characterized by feelings of overwhelming stress, exhaustion, and lack of motivation. There are many contributing factors to physician burnout, including long work hours, increased patient loads, and rising expectations from both patients and medical institutions. Moreover, certain job aspects such as documentation requirements and administrative tasks often leave physicians feeling burned out and unhappy with their careers.

In this podcast Dr. Daniela Steyn talks to Dr. Lara Hochman. Dr. Hochman is a Family Medicine physician, and advocate for fellow doctors' wellbeing amidst rising burnout and dissatisfaction. Dr. Hochman’s own experiences led her to discover the ways physicians lost autonomy. As the founder of Happy Day Health, Dr. Hochman helps patients reclaim their focus.

Dr. Hochman discusses the red flag signs of physician burnout and how changing where you work, whether in the hospital system or a private practice, will prevent burnout from happening.
