Guest speaker:
Danielle Ofri, MD
"The Amygdala and the Stethoscope:
How Emotions Affect the Practice of Medicine"

Danielle Ofri, MD, PhD, D.Litt (Hon), FACP, is an associate professor of medicine, New York University School of Medicine; editor-in-chief, Bellevue Literary Review; and author of "What Doctors Feel: How Emotions Affect the Practice of Medicine.”

Despite our commitment to the scientific method, doctors are not nearly as rational and evidence-based as we tell ourselves that we are. Emotions permeate our clinical decision-making, whether we choose to acknowledge this or not. The presentation examines how emotions affect doctors and the medical care they are able to give their patients.
