Dr. Ed Ellison, leader of one of the world’s largest groups of physicians, pulls back the curtain on one of medicine’s most critical issues: Doctors are suffering. On a quest to enlighten society to the value of recognizing the humanity of our physicians, Dr. Ellison gets real and goes to the heart of the matter, offering a solution to this acute issue.

Dr. Ellison is board certified in Family Medicine and is a diplomat of the American Academy of Family Physicians. He serves as executive medical director and chairman of the board for the Southern California Permanente Medical Group, one of the largest self-governing medical groups in the country, setting the strategic direction and accountability for all aspects of patient care.

In 2015, Dr. Ellison was named chairman of the board and CEO of The Southeast Permanente Medical Group of Georgia, responsible for TSPMG’s overall performance. Dr. Ellison is also co-CEO of the Permanente Federation, a consortium of all the Permanente Medical Groups in the nation, supporting the work of more than 21,000 Kaiser Permanente physicians and 80,000 employees.

In 2014 and 2015, Dr. Ellison served on the board of directors of the 2015 Special Olympics World Games, working with more than 650 SCPMG physicians and thousands of Kaiser Permanente employees who volunteered to provide care and support to more than 6,300 athletes. Dr. Ellison is board certified in Family Medicine and is a diplomat of the American Academy of Family Physicians. He serves as executive medical director and chairman of the board for the Southern California Permanente Medical Group, one of the largest self-governing medical groups in the country, setting the strategic direction and accountability for all aspects of patient care. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

Doctors choose to kill themselves because they understand that they are incapable, flawed humans, who have continually make unforgivable mistakes in an effort to make money. Good riddance.

It's a miracle that I am alive today. I encountered HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS (HSV1 / 2) for four (4) years, And BAD BREATH (Halitosis) At 26, and without warning, my breath began its rapid descent towards face-melting foulness. I started to notice that people were beginning to stand quite far away from me when I spoke, before I met Dr abumere. I am from los angeles California, united state of America. Herpes is a viral infection caused by the Herpes simplex virus, marked by painful, watery blisters in the skin or mucous membrane or on the genitals. This was what I suffered for four years. I have visited CVS Pharmacy in CA for treatment but no improvement. I met Dr abumere online while I was searching for a herpes cure. II read a testimony about his work. I gave him a try and it turns to a testimony in my life. Just after two days (2) taking the medicine as directed by him i began to see some good change, my breath was noticeably fresher and cleaner - and more importantly, me hsv1 / 2 is gone. My report came out negative, all thanks to God. my "Dragon Breath" hasn't returned since ... You too can contact Dr abumere WhatsApp +2349021975055 or E-mail: ( thank you ...

Clinic Reimbursement? dwindles almost as fast as he Rx med prices rise. The Psych intake guy remarked that the insurance of the two patients won’t even pay the psych hospital Unless the patients were ‘in the act’ of attempting suicide or homicide at the time of admission! And yet, our Medical training produced attitudes of: “...I know I am sick, but that’s not an excuse to miss work - unless I’m actively vomiting...” We had fellow residents work while hooked to IV poles for rehydration or broken ribs or just-casted fractures. We traded stories re: staying up more hrs for a bigger crisis than the next guy. We wore our self-sacrificing sufferings in the face of duty to our patients and each other like a badge of honor. More Paperwork, more patients, less pay, Less Time, more treatment interference, and still the same nutrition-poor, overworked, under slept, self-sacrificial lifestyle. And No confidants? No Wonder!

I finished 2 hours, after clinic hours, at a clinic I don’t own, trying to find an intervention for a dangerous psychiatric crisis of SI and acted on HI ... in elementary children ... whom I’d already referred to Psych and sent to Pedi Hospital ER, from which they were punted back; to then be confronted with the managerial reality that such practices lose money. I was not insulted by this because I know it’s true. Appointments are scheduled for every 10 minutes (less than 10 min therefore for triage/SOAP/discharge).

To all the doctors out there who are suffering from a sense of not being good enough, not being appreciated for the incredible job that they are doing, getting beaten up due to the ignorance and illiteracy of the mass population, the guilt when trying to put their own needs before others; please take care of your mental health. If it doesn’t feel right, there’s no shame in choosing what is right for you and leaving what isn’t. You should come first always.

This is so important for everyone to hear - I dropped out of medical school because I was losing my humanity. Very little support, lots of shaming, and lots of pain. Suicides, depression, drug use, and mistreatment were prevalent. Speak out!

Thank you! There is a great need to validate that those people have right to feel exhausted. They are not for society to drain dry. Physycians, nurses, paramedics, lab workers... They are people and they deserve compassion.

Traumatic brain injury survivors get burned out from the constant friction of the therapy hsmpster wheel. Constantly trying to be better is great until I realized I'm still who I am. Who are they trying to change? Why do they want I am to change for them. I am is the name of God for all future generations. Who I am doesn't get burned out., according to how the army trained me to be. Most people know the bullet proof label on a helmet don't mean its guaranteed to stop a bullet from bring shot at.

Its a number of small things that pile up; one step would be, could you get people to quit demeaning us by calling us “providers??” We’re physicians and it is wrong for the “suits” to take that away from us.

And don’t get paid anywhere near as much as doctors, nor do they have the privilege of having their struggles showcased in a Ted talk. Because farmers / food don’t matter, but a sociopathic medical doctors over entitlement does.

Definite Amen to Farmers... essential! and yet also taken for granted & lacking societal support; their unceasing efforts unappreciated; their struggles, heartaches and disasters unrecognized.

guest guest that’s amazing. Can I watch a ted ed about farmers and engineer? What sort of issues are they having? I’m curious. Surely you brought them up because there are important issues you want to discuss, not just to invalidate and get triggered over a title, right?

@Eric Orr why bring up the phrase "saving lives"? Don't we all save lives? For example, mechanics save lives because if ambulance breaks down, they have to fix it, etc.

Thank you. My dad was a physician and I loved him so much and I also really appreciate my family doctor so maybe the next time I see him I will tell him that and maybe I will tell him that not do I appreciate him but I have no doubt that his other patients feel the same and I hope he is looking after himself.

I’m a nurse practitioner in Canada, this is exactly how I have been feeling. I’ve tried to reach out and ask for help and have only met resistance. Shape up or ship out was essentially what I was told. Trying to find my place.

Maybe one day you will need a doctor and if you do I hope you will appreciate the help you get. You probably have a good reason for feeling the way you do but there are a lot of dedicated physicians out there.

Well said, Ed, such an important issue for all of us. I still remember the day I got my medical school acceptance letter from Northwestern. It was one of the proudest days of my life, and I wish we can all think back to how each one of us must have felt on that day. SCPMG is leading the way with your leadership.Thanks for all you do.San B.
