This week, the Hope4Med podcast features Dr. Vanessa Klugman. She is an endocrinologist who stopped practicing medicine in 2015 and currently is an ICF-certified life and recovery coach. Dr. Klugman shares her journey into the field of medicine and the events that led her to leave medicine. We discuss perfectionism in medicine and how setting these unattainable standards affect mental health. We further explore how mental health and substance use disorders affect healthcare professionals and the barriers to seeking the care they need.
