He is board certified in Internal Medicine and is the author of Evidence-Based Medicine: A Framework for Clinical Practice, one of the first textbooks on this process that has become the standard by which healthcare providers make effective medical decisions.

Inspired by his medical training at the University of California, San Francisco (where he is currently an Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine), he discovered how the framework of evidence-based medicine not only promotes scientific intelligence but also cultivates emotional, social and spiritual intelligence to achieve a more holistic experience of health and well-being.

An in-demand expert in decision-making and promoting scientific and emotional intelligence, Dr. Friedland has delivered over a thousand programs to physicians, allied healthcare professionals, patients, the US Army and Navy, executives and employees in Fortune 500 companies, and for Vistage, a leading global network of CEO's.

Geared for leaders in healthcare, this presentation leverages Dr. Friedland's 4 in 4 Framework, a system that integrates brain science, cognitive behavioral therapy, positive psychology, evidence-based medicine and mindfulness practice to facilitate social, emotional and spiritual intelligence that empowers leaders to:
1) More fully recognize and manage reactive thoughts, feelings and behaviors that can hijack conscious leadership
2) Reappraise their underlying triggers of stress and self-doubt so they can more fully focus their attention on what's truly important
3) Strategically manifest a vision that expresses the specific values that provide the organization with a collective sense of meaning and purpose
4) Stay on track by mindfully framing the "right" questions, and finding and trusting the "right" answers to continually realign their actions with their core values, vision and purpose...as well as inspire this process in others to promote a more conscious culture

    "Dr. Friedland presented "Achieve Peak Performance" to SHaRE, a Senior HR group, of which I have been a member for more than four years. This program received the best response of any presentation this group has offered...Dr. Friedland's program was timely, intellectually stimulating and actionable. It made sense and helped the executives better understand how the brain functions in times of stress and its impact on the health of the workforce. In short, it provided great insight and a roadmap for stress in the workplace and in life. I highly recommend Dr. Friedland."

    "In only a few short sessions I have learned to identify stressful situations that could get me into a fight or flight mode so I can then overcome that primal reaction and get myself to go to clarity and flow easier and sooner. In learning the basic functions on how our brain works, identifying stress triggers and using the tools and methods that Dr. Friedland has taught me I have been able to raise my emotional quotient (EQ), address business situations with alert and clear thinking and make more effective decisions that have lead me to be much more productive...Dr. Friedland is brilliant and compassionate and has a keen sense to getting right to the heart of the situation."
