Do As I Say, Not As I Do: Depression and Burnout Among Physicians

AC Jackson Medical Society

Physician mental health has been increasingly discussed, largely due to the reports of physician suicides being at approximately 300 annually. Despite these numbers and the attention that this topic receives within our circles, physicians remain hesitant to engage in treatment due to fears of retaliation by their employers, hospital systems, and the medical board. Furthermore, most physicians are unaware of the resources available to them. This session will discuss common myths surrounding resources available in the state of Oklahoma as well as how to access these resources.
