Diane Shannon, MD, MPH, ACC

After experiencing paralyzing burnout as a new primary care physician, Dr. Diane Shannon made the difficult decision to leave practice and pursue a career in writing. Her focus for 20 years has been drawing attention to ways to address clinician burnout, system inefficiency, and patient safety problems. She is co-author of Preventing Physician Burnout: Curing the Chaos and Returning Joy to the Practice of Medicine, which was published in 2016. Dr. Shannon’s personal experience with burnout and her desire to support physicians motivated her to become a certified coach 5 years ago. As a transformation coach, she empowers individuals to find the places where they have agency and make choices that better match their core values. Since the pandemic, Dr. Shannon has focused on helping women physicians find the clarity, confidence, and courage they need to move from overwhelm, burnout, and self-doubt to lives where they can thrive again. Dr. Shannon has presented at dozens of national conferences, led numerous workshops, facilitated groups of various sizes, and was a member of a national task force on physician burnout. Dr. Shannon attended Williams College, Jefferson Medical College, and Harvard University. She completed training in Internal Medicine at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center in Boston and practiced general internal medicine before making the shift to writing and coaching.
