Burned out on Burnout?

Conclusion Learning how to pay attention to our attention (meta-attention) can be transformative. Using principles from cognitive science, we can create a comprehensive approach (attention capital theory in medicine) to reclaim the meaning and joy that has been depleted from our profession. Increasing the difficulty of our work to match our skill level, delegating low-level tasks to help us focus on critical steps in our physician zone, creating rules to eliminate distractions, and noticing both the wonder and suffering around us may be more important than resilience training or wellness modules. Although well-intentioned, the majority of these solutions are band-aids and do not address the underlying root cause: our increasing inability to pay attention to what matters in life. Optimizing our ability to focus, perform meaningful deep work, and be fully present along the way are the keys to reclaim joy and meaning in our personal and professional lives. Instead of paving the way out for unhappy physicians, we can create a stable platform that attracts the best and brightest into the field, enables doctors to stand tall, thrive personally and professionally, and ultimately heal the world. It all starts with our attention.  Sanj Katyal, MD FACR is the co-founder of the Positive Medicine Program for Physicians and runs a free peer support group for physicians by physicians.

CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that MTC is a more immunologically active tumor that has been previously reported. Patients with advanced MTC should be screened for targetable antigens and immune checkpoints to determine their eligibility for current clinical trials. Additional studies are necessary to fully characterize the antigenic potential of MTC and may encourage the development of adoptive T cells therapies for this rare tumor.

I was offered an out of match fellowship position and accepted it 2 days ago. Now, due to family issues It would not be ideal for me to relocate to that area. Is there a way I can withdraw my acceptance (I haven’t sign the intent letter or anything whatsoever, just email agreement) or would it be profesional suicide?

I'm a current fellow scheduled to graduate in July. After that, I'm joining a private practice located>1000 miles away from where I'm training. Until the pandemic hit, the plan was to fly out there next month to start looking for housing. In addition to the inherent risk of travel right now, my hospital just implemented a policy that if you leave the state you have to self-quarantine for 2 weeks (and they count that as vacation time). Not sure what I'm going to do to find housing in time... Finding housing during pandemic
