Caring Greatly podcast: Fundamental changes to work structure as an antidote to burnout

OBHG's Dr. Lisa Bukovac, senior vice president of clinical operations, recently participated in a conversation on the Caring Greatly podcast, a platform designed for healthcare leaders. In the episode, Dr. Bukovac discusses how obstetrics training and practice needs to evolve to support physician resilience and well-being.

Dr. Bukovac and the host talk about the factors in obstetrics that lead to physician burnout – especially the way that clinical practice is structured in a way that creates conflicts of time, attention and clinical expertise. Dr. Bukovac advocates for a fundamental restructuring of obstetrics training and operations that encourages physicians to specialize in office care, hospital care, or surgery. She believes this will not only lead to better clinical outcomes, but also a more manageable and sustainable practice model for clinicians. Dr. Bukovac shares her own journey from burnout to a practice that sustains her passion for medicine and allows her to balance work with her other life pursuits.
