The sudden, untimely, and tragic loss of Michael Palmer, MD, in October leaves a void that will never be filled. Michael’s heartfelt dedication to the relief of human suffering animated his career as a healer of patients and their doctors; he was a central and seminal figure in the physician health movement. Please join us in paying tribute to his legacy.
In addition to his trailblazing work on physician health, Dr. Palmer was an accomplished author of 19 suspense novels, including several New York Times bestsellers. His work has been translated into 35 languages.
Until the moment of his death, Dr. Palmer continued to be a thoughtful leader and spiritual godfather serving in his role as associate director emeritus.
He spoke openly about his own recovery from drug and alcohol abuse. In a 1996 New York Times article he said, ‘You’re taught from the day you start medical school that you’re a god, that you can have power over life and death. So when your life starts to crumble and the highest power you see is looking back in the mirror ‘ and you know that power is flawed ‘ it is very hard to get past that. . . . The doctor’s intelligence is often a barrier to recovery. But once he gets into recovery, it’s a huge asset because he sees the logic.’
We are honored to announce that PHS will continue the legacy of Dr. Palmer by offering lectures in the name of Dr. Palmer to each medical school in Massachusetts to create a culture of better self-care in support of the health of future physicians.
