Product description


''Doctors are not trained to communicate and understand the power of our words. There is only one thing truer than the truth: a story. Stories change people. And Starla's stories and prescriptions will change the way you feel about medicine.'' -- Bernie Siegel, MD, New York Times best-selling author of Love, Medicine & Miracles and The Art of Healing

''The practice of medicine is one of the most fulfilling professions humans have ever invented -- and also one of the most demanding. The profession is proving to be actually destructive to many physicians, as the essence of healing has become progressively eliminated through insanities too numerous to name. For many physicians, the magical intimacy of the doctor-patient relationship is little more than a distant memory. For all this, however, there is a way out. In this eminently hopeful, personal, down-to-earth book, Dr. Starla Fitch shares what has worked for her. This is a report from the front, from a medical insider who's been in the trenches and knows how to speak from her heart. Remedy for Burnout: 7 Prescriptions Doctors Use to Find Meaning in Medicine is really a hero's journey -- a report from one who has braved challenging experiences and returns to share lessons learned. I cannot imagine a physician who would not benefit from this book. I heartily recommend it to patients as well, because it is an opportunity for them to peek behind the curtain. I know my fellow physicians will share my enthusiastic response to this fine book: recalling why we entered medicine to begin with, why it once enchanted us, and how it can again. Thank you, Dr. Starla, for this great gift.'' -- Larry Dossey, MD, New York Times best-selling author of Healing Words: The Power of Prayer and the Practice of Medicine and One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters

''If you are a doctor or any healthcare practitioner who needs some rekindling of your original passion to help people, this is the book for you. Starla Fitch's purpose to help healthcare professionals move from burnout to vitality comes through loud and clear in this book. I highly recommend it.'' --

Steve Sisgold, author of What's Your Body Telling You?

"Underneath every burned-out physician lies the heart of a healer. Yet many doctors have forgotten the call to medicine that drew them, like priests are called to the priesthood, into the practice of medicine. Like yoga or meditation, medicine is a practice, and yet, may have lost touch with this underlying touchstone. In Remedy for Burnout: 7 Prescriptions Doctors Use to Find Meaning in Medicine, Dr. Starla Fitch offers medicine for the soul to help her fellow physicians reconnect with what matters in health care." -- Lissa Rankin, MD, New York Times best-selling author of Mind Over Medicine --Reviews

Product Description

Dr. Starla Fitch went into medicine for all the right reasons. As a sociologist interacting with elderly patients, she found that they were overwhelmed by the healthcare system and their needs were often not fully met due to the pace of appointments. She knew she could help them. So she enrolled in medical school and excelled in her residency and fellowship. But not long after she began her practice, the demands of the profession coupled with the bureaucracy of the system began to take their toll. On the verge of burnout, she knew she had to find a way to reconnect with the reasons she became a physician. She did – and now she helps other doctors do the same.

Remedy for Burnout: 7 Prescriptions Doctors Use to Find Meaning in Medicine shares Starla's story and those of fellow physicians who tapped into their own passions and talents and discovered the meaning in medicine unique to each of them. Her seven prescriptions provide actionable advice that doctors can take to assess their current situations and reconnect with the reasons why they put on their white coats every day.
