Here’s the latest medical fad: Physician resiliency training.
Doctors are already the most resilient people on the planet.
Doctors can go days on call without eating. I know. I have.
Doctors can go 24 hours without a bathroom break. (yes, we even have the most resilient bladders!)
Doctors can work 168-hour shifts with little or no sleep as detailed in this whistleblower video.
Doctors can tell parents their child died in a car wreck and then immediately run a code in the next room—without shedding a tear.
