Dr. Jacob DeLaRosa is a modern healthcare provider in every sense of the word. He is a dynamic teacher, role model, leader in medicine, celebrity speaker, author and TED talk alumnus.
Dr. DeLaRosa is double board certified in General Surgery and Thoracic surgery. In 2004 he left Emory University and went to Idaho to build the first Cardiothoracic and Endovascular Center in Southeast Idaho.
Suffering from a catastrophic accident while jogging, he was hit by a car doing freeway speed. Since recovering he has focused his efforts on engaging patients and healthcare providers on how positive energy gets you positive results!
His interest in disruptive behaviors began when a colleague was accused of being a “disruptive physician”. As a leader in the medical staff, and in the hospital he had never heard of the term, knew what the term meant, or even what it signified. He knew that if he had never heard of the term, that many other physicians, medical staff leaders and administrators hadn’t either.
In his extensive research, he found many articles addressing physician disruptive behavior. What was missing was the perspective from a practicing surgeon and what it feels like if you have to go through the process of being termed a disruptive physicianTM.
The book - The Disruptive Physician, “How to Manage the Consequences of Being You”, is a step by step guide to avoiding being termed a disruptive physician and if you have already, what to expect.
