“When the medical profession—a career you have pursued for years, a career you love and trust to do no harm does something to shatter the foundations of your sense of trust and worldview, the resulting trauma can be severe resulting in loss of sense of self and life-altering betrayal grief that mirrors the stages of acceptance of one’s own death (or the death of a piece of one’s soul when swept up in the betrayal cascade)—denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. As a witness to immense betrayal within the medical profession, I’ve felt them all.”
Pamela Wible is a family physician and author of Physician Betrayal: How Our Heroes Become Villains.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Medicine’s culture of betrayal.”
