Dr. Michael Myers is a specialist in physician health, and a professor of Clinical Psychiatry at SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University in Brooklyn, NY. Early in medical school, a fellow medical student and friend died by suicide.* That event shaped the rest of Dr. Myers' career, which he devoted to caring exclusively for physicians, medical students, and their families. In this episode, we talk about how we can care for physicians today, and how we can advocate for a better tomorrow.
