Robert L. Klitzman, MD, Associate Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, discusses his book When Doctors Become Patients. This book weaves together gripping first person accounts of the experience of doctors who fall ill and experience the thoughts, feelings, and reactions of patients. The accounts reveal how dramatic the role reversal can be – a radical change for some, a spiritual journey for others. The descriptions are sad, funny, deep, and powerful. This is a beautiful researched work, and asks the question “how do doctors heal”.
