THE NOCTURNISTS: Shame in Medicine / On Trial

In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, we are sharing episodes all this week from The Nocturnists' series "Shame in Medicine," hosted by Dr. Emily Silverman. The award-winning series draws on the stories of over 200 healthcare workers across the United States, the UK, and beyond, this series explores how shame manifests in medical culture.

1 in 10 physicians will get sued at some point in their career, but they rarely discuss this, much less prepare for it. In this episode, we consider how to bring the stress and shame associated with lawsuits out of the shadows?

The Nocturnists, a Bay Area-based medical storytelling podcast, features personal stories from frontline clinicians, conversations with healthcare experts, and special documentary series like Post-Roe America.
