Pamela Wible! Pamela is a 51yo family medicine physician, emotional bungee jumper, and expert on physician suicide. I met Pamela as a keynote speaker on the topic of why doctors are killing themselves. We caught up and decided to record an interview for the podcast!
During this conversation, we discuss her fondest childhood memories in a morgue with her father, how a pediatrician’s funeral service woke her up to the epidemic of physician suicide, and why she released her book on Juneteenth with endless optimism for a day that can change everything.
an expert on physician suicide,
a free spirit,
along for the ride,
absolutely fascinated by human psychology and culture change,
and free flowing.
Before Pamela dies, she wants…
to experience all the fun stuff of life,
to eradicate human rights violations in medical training,
to stop the suicides in medical training,
the male-female to be more complementary,
everyone to be vegan,
and to help physicians release their full healing potential on the world.
When Pamela dies, she wants…
to reunite with all these doctors on her board,
and to not be in physical pain.
After Pamela dies, she wants…
to hangout with Greg Miday,
to hangout with her dogs,
and to play jokes on people.
In conclusion, Pamela says…
Try not to make fear-based decisions. Be in the flow of your power and your truth. You have everything you need inside of you and all the wisdom already exists in you.
The seed of you is there and you really don’t need much, except water, food, friends, and random people to show up and help it grow.”
