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 2 years of funding, and presenting at national conferences, this question was answered. His goal is simple — to engage all residents with practical and evidenced-based solutions. 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. He has published in Kevin MD, Medscape, Physician’s Weekly, Medical Economics, American Family Physician, Anesthesia & Analgesia, Manual of Clinical Anesthesiology, Pain Practice, Pain Medicine, and Journal of Graduate Medical Education. He welcomes and encourages you to reach out to him at daniel@solvingresidentburnout.com
