Fundamental Changes to Work Structure as an Antidote to Burnout - Lisa Bukovac, DO

In this episode, Dr. Bukovac and I talk about the factors in obstetrics that lead to physician burnout – especially the way that clinical practice is structured in a way that creates conflicts of time, attention and clinical expertise. Dr. Bukovac advocates for a fundamental restructuring of obstetrics training and operations that encourages physicians to specialize in office care, hospital care, or surgery. She believes this will not only lead to better clinical outcomes, but also a more manageable and sustainable practice model for clinicians. Dr. Bukovac shares her own journey from burnout to a practice that sustains her passion for medicine and allows her to balance work with her other life pursuits.
