Dr. Laura Cazier, Dr. Amanda Dinsmore, and Dr. Kendra Morrison, who are all emergency medicine physicians, discuss their experiences with burnout and how they have managed to overcome it. They now work as physician coaches and share their knowledge on their podcast, the Drive Time Debrief. Their podcast aims to provide tools and support to help other physicians cope with the stresses of their job and approach medicine from a healthier and happier perspective. They also discuss cognitive biases, such as equating worth with work and perfectionism, that can negatively impact physicians' mental health.
