2017 Conference - The Joy of Healthcare: Why We Serve the Poor

In the age of physician burnout and threats to the practice of ethical medicine, the Christian medical professional is not immune. Professional burnout can be eased by a clear conviction of the “why” for a chosen career. Burnout and mission drift can contribute to medical errors, decisions to leave practice, personal distress, and a lack of career satisfaction. Sister Mary Diana, a Dominican religious sister and a practicing internist, will explore the unifying principles of Christian healthcare, from Genesis through the apostolic epistles, and demonstrate the meaning behind the work we do -- so that you will be renewed in mind and heart.
