This episode of The Menninger Clinic’s Mind Dive Podcast explores burnout and emotional labor experienced by physicians and mental health professionals, particularly among women clinicians.
Driven by their observations of burnout within their own psychiatry department at Harvard Medical School, Ashwini Nadkarni, MD, and Jhilam Biswas, MD, take a dive into their quest to understand the factors influencing women who are leaving the field or contemplating career changes.
Join co-hosts Kerry Horrell, PhD and Robert Boland, MD, for this discussion of issues commonly faced by women physicians, such as an increased likelihood of depression due to the strain of balancing work and family life and the emotionally charged experience of discarding professional aspirations for conflicting needs.
Dr. Biswas and Dr. Nadkarni are both instructors of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School Department of Psychiatry. Dr. Biswas serves as the director of Psychiatry, Law and Society Program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the co-director of Harvard Mass General Brigham Forensic Psychiatry Fellowship. Dr. Nadkarni also serves as assistant medical director of Brigham Psychiatric Specialties and associate vice chair of Wellness in the Department of Psychiatry.
