Ep 4: The PowerMedEd Podcast – When It’s No Fun Anymore – Depression in Physicians

The rate of depression is higher in physicians than the general public.  If you have not encountered depression in your own life, you have certainly seen the effects of depression among your colleagues.  Dr. Nasr, a board-certified psychiatrist and a "physician for physicians", discusses why depression is increased among medical professionals.  He also highlights ways to decrease depression and improve your own well-being.

Dr. Nasr received his medical degree from the American University of Beirut, Lebanon and completed his residency in psychiatry, including a consultation-liaison fellowship in neurology, at the University of Rochester School of Medicine in Rochester, NY. Since 1986, he has owned and operated Nasr Psychiatric Services in Michigan City. For the past 16 years, Dr. Nasr has also been the Behavioral Medicine Medical Director at St. Anthony Memorial Health Centers in Michigan City. Dr. Nasr serves as medical director of Memorial EPWORTH CENTER.

He has served as the psychiatric consultant to the counseling centers at the University of Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s College and Valparaiso University. Additionally, he has been an educational leader, first working at the Clinical Research Center of the University of Chicago at the Illinois State Psychiatric Institute and then University of Illinois at Chicago. He is now serving on the faculty of Indiana University School of Medicine’s Department of Psychiatry and the University of Notre Dame’s Department of Psychology. Dr. Nasr also participated in the formation of the Lebanese University School of Medicine in Beirut. He is board certified in general and geriatric psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and has been an examiner for the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology since 1981.
