GLMS TO HOST WORKSHOP
ENCOURAGING JOY IN
New Zealand anesthesiologist Robin Youngson,
MD, will lead a physician workshop at The Old
Medical School Building with his wife, Meredith
Youngson, on Tuesday, April 21 at 7 a.m.
In honor of the Mayor’s Give a Day Week of Service,
GLMS President-Elect, Bob Couch, MD, MBA, joins
Denise Puthuff, MD, and the GLMS Foundation
Missions Committee in hosting “Rediscovering Joy
in the Practice of Medicine,” a free workshop for all
GLMS members and their staff who are interested
in enhancing the quality of their work.
Recent studies have shown that U.S. physicians
suffer more burnout than other American professions. Increasingly complex medical practice regulations and administrative burdens have vastly
contributed to this negative trend. An editorial
published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine reported burnout rates range from 30 to 65
percent across specialties, with the highest rates
incurred by physicians in front-line specialties such
as emergency medicine and primary care.
The Youngsons are co-founders of Hearts in Healthcare and will lead this unique workshop designed
to help physicians and their staff resolve conflict,
reconnect to a deeper sense of purpose, and rediscover joy in their work. Dr. Youngson is the author
of “Time to Care - How to Love Your Patients and
Your Job.” He has also served on the World Health
Organization’s International Steering Committee
for Patient Safety Solutions.
GLMS and the GLMS Foundation invites you and
your staff to visit The Old Medical School Building on Tuesday, April 21. Join us for a continental
breakfast and reconnect with what drew you to
the practice of medicine.
To RSVP (by April 16), email [email protected]
or call 502-736-6366.
*Limited to first 125 registrants. Parking available
at the downtown YMCA garage, 555 South 2nd
