Hi, I'm Anoop. I completed my emergency medicine residency in 2011 and have been working in community ED settings since then. I grew up in a philosophically-minded family. Those influences have contributed to my view of medical education, clinical practice, and the wide-scale changes happening in healthcare today.

Many people, including most physicians, think that medical science's lack of understanding of mind and consciousness has little to do with what's happening in healthcare today, but I think we're missing the boat on a massive, inevitable shift in perspective that is already underway. It's still early, but the sooner we recognize it, the better. I created this site to educate my physician colleagues on the nature of the problem facing us and solutions that can carry our profession, our patients, and our colleagues forward.

I lay out my case in my letter to physician colleagues.
