What do physicians really want in life?

"It is no wonder that in 2020, a Doximity physician compensation report revealed there were no specialties in medicine in which women earned the same or more than men. We can all agree that many things could account for this, including structural barriers and lack of diversity or mentorship. It may also include factors such as women not maximizing billing knowledge, not knowing how to negotiate, not asking for the same or more of what is offered and just not thinking about what they really want. Instead as women, we think of others first, or what others expect of us. Yes, we know we want the job or the position. But is that position truly, truly, taking you towards your true purpose? Becoming chief of department, manager or CEO, are remarkable goals and should be pursued. But are the pursuits authentic to what you consciously found your purpose is? It is not about what your family thought you should achieve, but about doing something that truly takes you and continues to propel you on your true-life purpose. If you have not thought about it, then I challenge you to find introspection. Find consciousness and think about your true purpose. Continue to follow its path to experience joy so it will not leave you with regret when you look back. Find your purpose. Ask yourself, 'What do I really want in life?' And do it today." Diana Londoño is a urologist and can be reached at her self-titled site, Dr. Diana Londono, and on Twitter @DianaLondonoMD. She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, "What do you really want in life?" (https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2021/08/what-do-you-really-want-in-life.html)

Our health care system may be failing, but it isn’t broken

"The problem with health care isn’t 'fixing' the system. The problem is continuing to ensure that profits can be made and millions can be employed while better health care outcomes and experiences are achieved. We won’t find the solution to that problem by embracing the solutions offered by either the right or the left. We need to leave the past behind and start again, building a new health care system that better meets our needs. We have to build from the ground up, starting with a new foundation. I can’t wish away the political realities that stand in the way of such fundamental reform. But given all that’s at stake, I’m unwilling to accept anything less than this goal. Hopefully, you agree." Jeb Dunkelberger is a health care executive and author of Rich & Dying: An Insider Calls Bullsh*t on America’s Healthcare Economy. He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, "Our health care system may be failing, but it isn’t broken."

Finding Beauty and Connection When Raising a Medically Complex Kiddo with Melanie Dimmitt – Author of Special – Antidotes to the Obsessions that Come with a Child's Disability

ONCE UPON A GENE - EPISODE 101 Finding Beauty and Connection When Raising a Medically Complex Kiddo with Melanie Dimmitt - Author of Special: Antidotes to the Obsessions that Come with a Child's Disability Author Melanie Dimmit received her son's cerebral palsy (CP) diagnosis and she scoured the world for hope, stories, insight and companionship- desperate to know what she was up against and that everything was going to be okay. The result is her book, Special: Antidotes to the Obsessions that Come with a Child's Disability. EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS When you say not to feel ashamed of your feelings, what does that mean? At the beginning, it's hard because you have thoughts and feelings that make you feel like a terrible person because most of us come to disability with no experience or knowledge. I thought my son having a cerebral palsy diagnosis was the worst thing that could ever happen to me or him and it felt like the end of the world. You think terrible things, you feel like you can't talk to anyone about how you're feeling, and you have layers and layers of guilt. Getting a diagnosis and learning that your child's life won't be how you imagined is a form of grief. All of this is normal. Give yourself time and don't beat yourself up as you process through the thoughts and feelings you initially have.  Were you good at processing your feelings and moving on? I was good at being in denial and I didn't accept Arlo's disability for about six months. I began to see a psychologist who helped me to feel anger and sadness, to acknowledge how hard it is and that it's okay to feel how I feel. Professional help and connecting with other parents while writing my book helped me feel less alone. What moments with Odie do you savor because of Arlo? Everything. As she was growing up, it blew our minds how easily things came to her as we were working so hard with Arlo. Arlo is nonverbal, he doesn't roll, he doesn't sit and left to his own devices lies on the floor with a big smile on his face. He needs a lot of support, nothing comes easy and he's worked incredibly hard for head control, core strength and fine motor skills. There's a bitter-sweetness to Odie growing and hitting milestones, but having Arlo has made us more relaxed and better parents to Odie. If you were asked to submit a story to your book today, what would it be? Special is a gaping wound for me, though I'm glad it's there for parents just starting their journey. I feel entirely different now. The old me wouldn't want to hear the new me saying it's fine. I'd say to old me that I know I think people are pretending it's okay when it's not, and they're making the best of the scenario, but I promise that's not true. I promise you that you'll never wish this away. It's hard, unfair at times, times that Arlo is unwell and it's awful, but I wouldn't change any of it. Arlo is a phenomenal person, he's so much cooler than you can imagine. You are happier and more fulfilled than you ever would have been without Arlo.

Primary care: the variety and the intimacy of the problems I see

"Fifteen minutes for a checkup or urgent problem, thirty minutes for a physical. In the tiny gasps of time in between: Refilling scripts, checking labs, and signing medical supply orders and insurance authorization requests. Maybe lunch. Maybe a chance to get to the restroom if I am lucky. Clicking, always clicking away on my EMR, hoping to finish my notes. Maybe typing notes while holding on a phone call (why do patients call with a question about a medicine, but they leave the vial upstairs and have to retrieve it while you wait?), while trying to cram a few bites of lunch, while wondering if I will get out of there in time to get the blasted Valentine’s napkins before picking up the kids from their after-school program. I take a deep breath." Melissa Schiffman is an internal medicine physician. She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, "Primary care: I love the variety and the intimacy of the problems that are placed before me."
