MORE THAN 60% OF UK PHYSICIANS HAVE SUFFERED THE TRAUMATIC EFFECTS OF BURNOUT
... BUT NOW THERE’S A WAY TO BREAK THROUGH
Dr. Haidar Al-Hakim knows this all too well. An internationally-practicing ophthalmologist, Dr. Al-Hakim’s unwavering devotion to his studies, and to his career, led down the well-trodden path of devastating burnout and personal collapse.
Yet unlike far too many of his fellow medical professionals, who find it difficult to obtain support within a culture tarnished by extreme demands, bullying, power games, and overwhelming stress, he made it back from the brink.
With Physician on Fire, Haidar brings to you his unique, personally-developed 30-day programme that helps struggling physicians reconnect with themselves, their families, and their careers just like he did, in his own inimitable style.
Strikingly illustrated by cartoonist Chris Fletcher, Physician on Fire is the most distinctive self-help book you will ever experience. Part philosophy, part autobiography, and entirely inspirational – let Dr. Al-Hakim guide you through the next 30 days with his collection of Haidarisms: personal mantras, anecdotes, and daily activities that will help you escape from burnout and rekindle your flame once more.
If disillusionment, depersonalisation, constant worry, and unending demands are putting strain on you publicly and privately, it's time to get rekindle your spark with Physician on Fire.
