Daniel is an anesthesiology resident at Stanford University. During his training, he wondered, "What can we do practically to decrease resident burnout?" And after being voted Chief Resident of Wellness, receiving two years of funding, and presenting at a national conference, this question was answered.

These can be found in the upcoming book he authored, which is titled “Solving Resident Burnout: An Assessment & Plan” and the upcoming Solving Resident Burnout podcast that he hosts.

Can Minor Changes in a Program Affect Resident Burnout?

Instead, she surprises me.  “Do you know how much they […]
