Burn In, Don’t Burn Out: Wellness Strategies for Healthcare Professionals

As a board certified physician, Dr. Eva Selhub knows firsthand the stress that healthcare professionals experience on a daily basis. The COVID crisis has only magnified this ongoing phenomenon, with increased reports of “burn out” across our healthcare workforce. How can we prevent burn out under any circumstances? According to Dr. Selhub, the secret is to “burn in,” viewing physical and mental health as something that we must constantly nourish and replenish. By “filling the tank,” with self-care and self-awareness, we can avoid the “empty tank” of burnout. Sharing stories from her own life and career as a physician, Dr. Selhub provides specific strategies and tactics for maintaining equilibrium and building resilience in the face of stressful healthcare environments.
