The Doctor is Not Well

Disillusioned and disengaged, doctors today are more likely to commit errors and leave the profession. They suffer high rates of depression, substance abuse, and suicide. Their patients suffer a poorer quality of health care too. Mona Gable explores why doctors are so unhappy and what some of them are trying to do about it.

Open Up
