AHS Podcast Episode 28: An Alliant Physician Roundtable: Part 1 – Physician Wellness and Resilience Advice for Peers

May 20, 2021

Physicians are asked to wear many hats in service to their patients—healer, scientist, communicator, advocate, researcher, scholar, problem-solver and more. But especially in times like these, it is important to remember that physicians are also human, and subject to the same intense feelings of fatigue, anxiety, self-doubt and depression that arise in periods of extreme stress. Burnout presented an epic challenge for physicians and the practice of medicine long before COVID-19, but the virus has exacerbated the underlying and systemic problems that contribute most directly to physician burnout.  Tune in to this dynamic episode hosted by Alliant’s Chief Medical Officer of Medicaid, Dr. Susana Alfonso as she discusses physician wellness and resilience with fellow Alliant team members and physicians:

  • Dr. Joseangel Bedoya, Medical Director – Case Review
  • Dr. Dianne Bennett-Johnson,  Medical Director Medical Management Services 
  • Dr. Kimberly Rask – Chief Data Officer
