About Dr. Pamela Wible
An activist and community organizer at heart, Dr. Pamela Wible will discuss physician suicide, and how to escape “assembly-line medicine.” It’s in her nature to be joyful and optimistic, but Dr. Wible is also a healer and problem solver — whether it’s a doctor with PTSD
or a suicidal healthcare system. She is relentless in her pursuit of correcting injustices.
Dr. Pamela Wible is a family physician practicing in Eugene, Oregon. Her parents warned her not to practice medicine, but she followed her heart only to discover – to heal her patients she had to first heal her profession. When not treating patients, Dr. Wible devotes her life to physician suicide prevention. She runs a suicide hotline and hosts retreats for depressed and discouraged medical students and physicians.
