Burned Out and Hating Your ER Job? Try Something New (Dr. Harry Severance)

"There's nothing more upsetting than maybe spending your life growing up to be a physician in emergency medicine. And 5, 10, 15 years into your career, you suddenly wake up one morning and say, 'I hate my life. I hate my job.' How does one change direction at that time in your life?"

But how can you make a change?  Or are there ways to feel not so burned out?
