A Call for Culture Change

I don't think it’s controversial to say that global medical culture has too much toxicity, stress, stiffness, and difficulty for people to practice medicine. We need a detoxification. That means more emphasis on the human side and less on the achievement side. Less competition, more collaboration. Less of medicine saturating bright minds and more of bright minds saturating medicine. Fewer clichés about our work as a “calling” and a new philosophy about its being a profession full of capable minds who are doing the best they can. Medicine needs a stat injection of creativity and wandering, instead of continuing the IV drip of aggression.
