The Doctor Paradox

Over the years, our perceptions of doctors have changed.

From being altruistic and caring healthcare professionals to sometimes being apathetic robots.

As to why this is happening, this podcast might have some answers.

Dr. Paddy Barrett talks to doctors and tries to address the issue of doctors’ increasing dissatisfaction in their jobs.

Shocking, huh? Issues like burnout, sleep deprivation and other challenges that physicians face.

You’d probably say, “I have enough negativity in me already and I don’t need more of this.”

But it’s not all about that. The podcast also features advice from real doctors who have found ways to overcome.

Ultimately, the goal of this podcast is to help doctors reignite their dying passions.

Are you struggling with similar issues?

Find solutions to these problems. Only when doctors find fulfillment in their calling can they truly add value and meaning to patients’ lives.
