    #303 Women in Medicine: Wellness & Workarounds

    #303 Women in Medicine: Wellness & Workarounds

    Explore burnout and gender-based differences in well-being with our esteemed guests Drs. Clif Knight, Tammy Lin, and Kim Templeton. We discuss workarounds for leading our way to wellness. 





    Dr. Clif Knight is a family physician and Senior Vice President for Education at the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) with extensive leadership and expertise in well-being. 



    Dr. Tammy Lin is an internal medicine specialist and a Voluntary Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California, San Diego Health Sciences. We originally met her as a member of the Wellness through Equity and Leadership (WEL) Program and she started a podcast called "The DEI Shift" (pronounced The "Day" Shift), which focuses on diversity, equity, and inclusion within the medical field. Dr. Knight and Dr. Lin participated in the 2019-2020 WEL program-- six different specialty organizations came together to think about the core tenets of equity, well-being and leadership and how you really can’t have one without the other. 






    Dr. Kim Templeton is Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City.  Her research focuses on women physicians and the inclusion of sex and gender medicine in medical education.
