Dr Douglas Mata is a Resident Pathology Physician at the Brigham & Women's Hospital and a Clinical Fellow at the Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts. He attended the University of Cambridge, UK on a Fulbright Scholarship and the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Madrid, Spain. Dr Mata has also published extensively on the area of physician burnout and physician mental health, with his work appearing in the NEJM, Lancet Psychiatry and The New York Times.
I have read much of Dr Mata's works and was excited to have him on the show to share his professional and at times very personal insights on the field of physician burnout and depression. This is a fantastic conversation with a rare expert in the field.
