Tammie Chang, MD joins us today to discuss Kind Intentional Boundaries. Boundaries are a relatively new concept that were essentially introduced to the public in the 1990’s, so they’re not something our parents (for example) grew up with. As women, we were socialized not to talk back or complain and to be caretakers and givers, so this makes the concept of boundaries extra difficult (and potentially feel negative). Burnout in women, especially physicians, is real, but boundaries can mean freedom. So, how do we set positive boundaries with kindness and intent?
