Dr. Stuart Bloom spent his 20's in New York City as an actor and musical comedian, but after he turned 30, and his own father was diagnosed with cancer, he had an epiphany and decided to become an oncologist. After an award winning, twenty year run in community oncology, he joined the Division of Hematology, Oncology and Transplantation at the Medical School in 2021 as part of the Master Clinician pathway. As Associate Director of Physician and Faculty Well-Being for the division, he is committed to exploring and mitigating the causes of physician burnout. He is also an affiliated faculty of the Center for the Art of Medicine, further developing the intersection of the humanities in medicine.
His acclaimed musical How to Avoid Burnout in 73 Minutes (www.burnoutmusical.com) has enjoyed multiple sold out runs in the Twin Cities, and has been performed at both Mayo Medical School and the University of Minnesota.
