Description

The Doctor Paradox is about addressing why despite having incredibly meaningful jobs, doctors are increasingly unhappy in their work. Quite simply, it is a tragedy that we have allowed this to happen. That intensely passionate, dynamic and altruistic individuals have lost their core passions and found themselves adrift in the world of healthcare is unacceptable. The Doctor Paradox focuses on 4 key issues: 1. The factors that explain why doctors are dissatisfied with the world of healthcare. But more importantly… 2. The physicians that have rediscovered their passions and carved new paths, both within and outside of traditional healthcare. 3. The experts who offer insight on topics related to the challenges faced and the mechanisms to address them such as sleep deprivation, burnout, career advice and philosophical perspectives. 4. The strategies to rediscover your passion, find a new course and pursue what is required to find fulfillment. A primary responsibility of physicians is to add value and meaning to our patients lives and that of our own. To fulfill only one of these criteria is not enough. Without value and meaning in our own lives it is almost impossible to provide it to that of our patients. As physicians, we hold a most privileged position. We intersect with our patients lives, often in their darkest hour, with them asking for our help. For physicians to sustainably provide that help, they must first and foremost help themselves. Not to do so will ultimately degrade one of the most sacred of relationships: that of the patient in need and the doctor who can tend to that need. The Doctor Paradox also serves to explore a ‘New Medicine’ where the traditional model of what it means to be a doctor has changed. That the doctor of the future will still be adding immense value and meaning to patients lives but may be doing so in ways not conventionally pursued before. The physicians of the future will help patients across a spectrum of care, from face to face clinical encounters to designing and developing novel technologies that will significantly impact the lives of patients. For a ‘New Medicine’ we need a ‘New Doctor’. The future of medicine is bright but unless we begin a major course correction, physicians drift toward ever increasing uncertainty. As the famous saying goes: “Things always get worse…. before they get worse”. It is up to us as physicians to effect the changes we wish to see in our own lives and in doing so, ultimately that of our patients. Things are getting worse, let’s make them better. We are ‘standing on the shoulders of giants’, so it’s not that we ought to, it’s that we have to.

Great podcast applicable beyond just medicine

This podcast is off to a great start and I look forward to listening more. While some of the episodes are more specific to medicine, others have food for thought for many professions -- I'm a lawyer and many of the deeper lessons about patients are directly applicable to dealing with clients.

Keep up the good work!

This is a Live Changing Podcast!

Dr Paddy really delivers on this podcast through his genuine, authentic caring and sharing of deep wisdom provided by him and his inspirational expert guests. He addresses the challenges Physicians face today and how to overcome them to get back the initial drive to help patients even more. Thank you for this podcast, it’s a life changer for those who care for patients and all the patients who rely on them!

Awesome Podcast

Wow, lots of interesting thoughts. The way medicine and healthcare is practiced and approached in our country has led to where we are in medicine today - physicians who are not getting what they expected out of their professions and patients who are not getting the most that they could/should be out of their doctors. This podcast is helping address how to maybe start resolving some of this issues as opposed to just being a soundboard for frustrations. I’m so excited to see where this goes!!
