The Physician Champion

Agent for a Compassionate Culture

Malcolm Herring

The Physician Champion provides immediately applicable, experience-proven methods to sustain the spiritual formation of physicians on a medical staff, align them on a mission, and develop a culture of mutual care and compassion. The author practiced for thirty-two years as a surgeon, working ten of those with physicians to develop and prove these methods. With a virtual vacuum in support for doctors, Dr. Herring responds to a growing hunger for these topics as expressed by hundreds of retreat participants from around the world who've attended seminars at Seton Cove Spirituality Center in Indiana.

At no time in the history of American medicine have the economic downturn and national health reform so converged to accentuate turmoil in the lives and practices of physicians. Today, the American College of Surgeons reports that forty percent of its members are "burned out," and that thirty percent meet screening criteria for clinical depression. Our sole reliance on a business model in hospitals and clinics is making American medicine sick. The Physician Champion offers an alternative.
