Addressing Burnout in Medicine


FIVE DAYS TO FRIDAY uses the power of theater and dance to unpack the unseen stressors (gender bias and expectations, mental health stigma, toxic/ unsupportive work environments) that all-too-often threaten the health and well-being of health care professionals. The story follows a prominent general surgeon and chief resident as they attempt to navigate a week of familiar challenges related to their professional and personal life. A talk-back will take place following the 45-minute production that explores the themes addressed in the play in addition to resources and strategies focused on building a healthier culture of medicine.
