It is with tremendous JOY I announce that my new book, Recapturing Joy in Medicine, is coming this May 2019!
It's been a tremendous privilege — I have learned so much from my colleagues. This resource is an expression of my gratitude for you — your dedication, your unswerving commitment to our patients, and your excellence — and my deep desire to bless, encourage, and empower each of you!
The book is practical and hopeful as well as a call to action. I remind physicians of the sacrifices we made to become physicians and of the privilege we have to care for our patients in what remains a noble profession!
FROM THE BACK COVER
Written by a physician still navigating the dizzying reality of our healthcare crisis, this book inspires a proactive journey toward personal wellness, professional fulfillment, and a deeper sense of meaning. Fully informed yet not disheartened by modern hurdles, Dr. Sánchez confronts barriers and highlights what must be done to preserve the patient-physician relationship, restore our hearts, and rekindle the sacred in our noble profession.
Thank you for helping spread the word about this upcoming resource for physicians, medical students, residents, fellows, medical schools, training programs, health systems ... and all who love and work alongside these dedicated professionals!

Thank you for your loving support and encouragement throughout the writing process! It's been long and difficult and full of obstacles and, yet, here we are!! Just like our training: every drop of sweat and tears and all the long nights are worth it to experience the joy that awaits in the morning.
There is a morning ahead for every physician who is burned out, burning out, or recovering from burnout. Yep. That's all of us right there, I know! Stay encouraged, find your tribe, and continue to rely on one another just like you did in training!
If the system continues to disempower and undervalue physicians despite our sacrifices and expertise, then it is time for physicians to empower one another.
That is what I am here to do, and that is what this book will accomplish for our profession. I can't wait.
Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
