Formed by two resident doctors in the Midwest, Doctors of Gaming was conceived in 2016 as an idea to promote physician wellness, act as a hub of connection using a laid back format of gaming, and as a community for like-minded people to team up and play their favorite games together. Set down the stethoscope and pick up that controller!
Most of us grew up in the N64 era and have kept gaming throughout, others are just rediscovering their old passion. Either way, it is a really cool way for professionals to come together in a non-stressful environment.
Why not? Doctors have hobbies too, and we have found that quite a few of them like to game. On a more serious note, physician wellness is emerging as an area of increasing importance in the medical community. As we as a community work toward systemic change, us healers must remember to keep tabs on our own well-being. Here’s to hoping our little website, and the community it builds, brings a few people one step closer to balance.
