MEDICAL STUDENTS, RESIDENTS, FELLOWS, ATTENDINGS, FACULTY MEMBERS, and EVERY PHYSICIAN in PRACTICE:
THIS IS FOR YOU!
My latest book, Recapturing Joy in Medicine, is NOW AVAILABLE!!!
It’s been a tremendous privilege to research, write, and work on this project for years, including pursuing further training (beyond being a Board-certified family physician) as a health and wellness coach, in leadership coaching, and in targeted coaching geared at helping my colleagues embark on a journey to greater meaning and joy. I have learned so much from my colleagues as I’ve been invited to speak about these topics across the nation. Recapturing Joy in Medicine is an expression of my gratitude for you — your dedication, excellence, and unswerving commitment to our patients — and my sincere desire to bless, encourage, and empower each of you!
The book is interactive, practical, and hopeful as well as a call to action. I remind physicians of the sacrifices we made to become physicians and of the privilege we have to care for our patients in what remains a noble profession! My ultimate goal is nothing less than to help change the very culture of medicine.
FROM THE BACK COVER
Written by a physician still navigating the dizzying reality of our healthcare crisis, this book inspires a proactive journey toward personal wellness, professional fulfillment, and a deeper sense of meaning. Fully informed yet not disheartened by modern hurdles, Dr. Sánchez confronts barriers and highlights what must be done to preserve the patient-physician relationship, restore our hearts, and rekindle the sacred in our noble profession.
Thank you for helping spread the word about this unique resource for physicians, medical students, residents, fellows, medical schools, training programs, hospitals … and all who love and work alongside these dedicated professionals!
Special thanks to my wonderful husband and children and to so many friends and colleagues for your loving support and encouragement throughout the writing process! A special heartfelt thanks to every one of you in my support circle during unexpected challenges that transformed both the book and its author! And my deep gratitude to every physician who reviewed the manuscript and offered advice, encouragement, and such heartwarming endorsements of the book and my work on behalf of physicians and patients.
The journey has been long and full of obstacles and, yet, here we are! As in our medical training, every drop of sweat and tears and all the long nights are worth it to make a difference in people’s lives and experience the joy that awaits in the morning.
I am thrilled to share this unique resource. I have not seen another book like it, so I pray it is read by everyone who needs it (and by leaders in medical schools, residency programs, and hospitals who can make it accessible to those who need it but may not otherwise know about it!). My sincere hope is that this book will help transform the culture of medicine while equipping and inspiring my colleagues in their daily lives and work — for their benefit and that of our patients.
Thank you for all you do, and remember to be good to yourself!
