Overview

This ground-breaking new volume is the first of its kind to conceptualize and study the emerging field of faculty health and well-being in academic health science centers across North America. In Faculty Health and Academic Medicine: Physicians, Scientists, and the Pressures of Success, scholars already published in areas related to faculty health, as well as those primed to break new ground, have created a volume that will help define this new and evolving field. Recent years have brought the realization that clinicians and researchers in academic medicine, performing daily under high levels of stress, do so at great cost to their health. Socialized to diagnose and treat disease through biomedical science and technology, physicians often wall themselves off from emotional connection with their patients. Health does not thrive under these layers of pressures, and family and personal relationships are stretched under the need to constantly perform. Faculty Health and Academic Medicine: Physicians, Scientists, and the Pressures of Success draws from medicine, the social sciences, the humanities, and the arts. In addition to surveys, meta-analyses, and interviews, chapter data also calls upon history, literature, religious studies, and film to create a title that serves as a point of departure for understanding academic medicine and for designing new and innovative interventions to enhance faculty health.
