As a healer, do you ever feel like the essence of your craft is lost beneath the weight of your white coat? Dr. Yolanda Bogaert joins us to unravel her 26-year medical career, sharing a raw and honest narrative that navigates through the tumultuous waves of burnout to a place of rediscovery. Her story serves as a beacon, illuminating the importance of aligning one's medical practice with their true healer's identity and addressing the systemic issues that often lead to the erosion of a physician's passion.

Throughout our conversation, we examine the complex realities faced by those in the medical field. From the personal struggles that accompany the transition from residency to private practice to the profound realization that physicians are not omnipotent saviors, but rather guides for their patients' health journeys. These reflections provide a necessary recalibration of the doctor-patient dynamic, underscoring the significance of empathy, patient autonomy, and the delicate practice of detached attachment in healthcare.

This episode transcends the typical medical narrative, offering an ode to the Resilience of healers and the transformative power of patient care. Dr. Bogaert's insights remind us of our shared humanity and the timeless role healers play in it. As we close, we invite you to take a moment to reflect on your own path and consider how embracing your authentic healing identity can not only mitigate burnout but enrich your practice and the lives of those you touch.

Though I am a physician, this is not medical advice. This is only a tool that physicians can use to get ideas on how to deal with burnout and/or know they are not alone. If you are in need of medical assistance talk to your physician.
