Jo Shapiro, MD
I’m the director of the Center for Professionalism and Peer Support at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) in Boston and an associate professor of Otolaryngology at Harvard Medical School. I launched our Center in 2008. Since that time, we have become a model for institutions that are seeking methods to enhance teamwork and respect and are looking to help mitigate the epidemic of burnout that is plaguing the medical profession. I work with health care institutions nationally and internationally to offer leadership and guidance in building professionalism and peer support programs. I previously led the Division of Otolaryngology at BWH and maintain a surgical practice specializing in oropharyngeal swallowing disorders. I have served as president of the Society of University Otolaryngologists, where I chaired the Faculty Development Committee. I am an appointed member of the American Board of Otolaryngology — Head and Neck Surgery Education Council, and in 2012 I was elected as a senior examiner for the American Board of Otolaryngology. I am a core faculty member of the Managing Workplace Conflict: Improving Leadership and Personal Effectiveness course of Physician Health Services, Inc.
