How can we possible promote a more positive, health-focused healthcare system, if our physicians themselves are not thriving? Jordyn Feingold, MAPP, medical student and positive psychology practitioner at the Icahn School of medicine at Mount Sinai writes, “Physician burnout has been a well-documented problem for decades, and sadly, burnout and suicide among physicians are on the rise. I believe that tackling this pervasive problem requires our medical education institutions, from medical school through continuing medical education, to embrace and support positive medical training for practitioners as a new norm, treating it as a clinical skill for optimal patient care.” Jordyn developed REVAMP: an acronym that serves as a call to action for medical practitioners. The letters stand for familiar aspects of positive psychology adapted for medical professionals.
