Dr. Nic Nguyen is actively working in bringing physicians together, to create a safe space for them to bring their worries and needs, to break the isolation, and to create communities of practitioners who are overloaded, tired and also suffering the consequences of sexism and discrimination against minorities. Is there a formula for being a leader in this field? Unfortunately, there is no secret but as Dr. Nick states, the first step is building human connections by just sitting down and listening to other physicians. Listen to this conversation among colleagues and be inspired to innovate and start changing the system in your community too, for healthier physicians that can deliver better service to patients.
