Dr. Kien Vuu: Mending your Mindset: How One Doctor Quit Hiding Behind the White Coat
By Lynn Marie Morski, MD, Esq.
The number of physicians reaching burnout is staggering, and it’s no surprise, as medical schools only recently began teaching students how to be well and take care of themselves. But another reason is that the pressure put on doctors to fulfill society’s expectations of why they *should* have gone into medicine is often a very heavy burden to bear. This week’s guest, Dr. Kien Vuu, was headed down a less-than-healthy road himself when he realized part of why he went into medicine was to treat his “not enough-ness.” It took quitting that mindset and cultivating an attitude of success and gratitude to be able to turn his life around and become the true healer he knew he was inside.
