Physician's Guide to Doctoring with Bradley B. Block, MD

This is a podcast that answers the question, "what should we have been learning while we were memorizing Kreb's cycle?" This is a practical guide for practicing physicians and other healthcare practitioners looking to improve in any and all aspects of our lives and practices. Physician and non-physician experts are interviewed on a wide range of topics to help us with personal and professional development.

Sanj Katyal, MD, is a radiologist and a student of positive psychology. He is the author of the Amazon #1 Best Seller Positive Philosophy: Ancient and Modern Wisdom to Create a Flourishing Life, where he combines the philosophy of the ancient stoics and Bhagavad Gita with the relatively new, science-backed positive psychology to help us live our best lives. We interviewed him about that in February of 2019. If you haven’t already listened to it, be sure to check it out. He’s taken it a step further and created a course: THRIVE RX: A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO FLOURISHING FOR PHYSICIANS BY PRACTICING PHYSICIANS.

Thrive-Rx is a collaboration with four physician experts to bring you “the course that we wish we had taken in medical school.” Sound familiar? It covers the key components of flourishing: personal well-being (heal the healer), professional fulfillment (reclaim joy in medicine), success (get what you want), and financial independence (work on your own terms).

The Thrive-Rx team created this course for two main reasons. The first goal is to equip physicians with new tools, training and practical strategies that allow them to reclaim more joy and meaning from medicine. The other goal is to help physicians teach these principles to their patients and families. And they are all still in practice, practicing what they preach. A lot of our discussion focuses on attention and why that’s the key to flourishing, using our time and attention most efficiently by outsourcing and minimizing distraction.

Dr. Katyal is the Founder of Positive Psychology Program for Physicians and President of Optimal Life Imaging Group, PC. Dr. Katyal also holds certifications in Positive Psychology and Positive Psychology Coaching from Whole Being Institute. He is investigating the effectiveness of positive psychology interventions on physician wellness/burnout.
