All By Myself: Finding Connection in Vet Med

Technology makes it easier than ever to connect with people around the globe.  And yet, despite that, or maybe because of it, loneliness is becoming an increasingly prevalent problem. As many as 1 in 5 Americans say they feel lonely or suffer from social isolation. And the long, non-traditional work hours, job-related stress, and emotional fatigue associated with veterinary medicine can make it even harder for veterinary professionals to find meaningful connections in their lives.

 

Loneliness decreases our physical and mental health and makes it harder to cope with the stress of veterinary medicine. So how can we fight loneliness and find meaningful connection in lives and our careers?

 

Learning Objectives:

  • To discuss the risk factors for loneliness
  • To understand the mental and physical health risks associated with loneliness
  • To address the ways in which we can combat loneliness and find meaningful connections
