How Doctors Can Achieve Inbox Zero Every Single Day with Dr. Alexia Gillen

Open charts, full inboxes, gaining weight, missing kid's activities, not sleeping well…Alexia went through a couple of burnout phases as a practicing physician with no boundaries. She decided to fully focus on her medical informatics role, and this allowed her to step back, take care of herself and work through the different burnout phases and also see how her fellow physicians are struggling. 


Dr. Alexia G. Gillen is a family medicine doctor in Rapid City, South Dakota, and is affiliated with Rapid City Regional Hospital. She is also a life coach who is on a mission to help women physicians who are trying their best to leave clinic at the end of their day with all their clinical work and charting done yet seem to never get caught up.
