About Dr. Alex Lickerman:

Dr. Alex Lickerman is a renowned physician, author, and thought leader. His work integrates ancient Buddhist philosophy with modern psychology to provide practical strategies for achieving true happiness and resilience. Dr. Lickerman's books "The Ten Worlds" and "The Undefeated Mind" have been highly acclaimed for their insights into the science of happiness and resilience.

As the founder of Imagine MD, Dr. Lickerman is dedicated to offering holistic care and preventative medicine to help individuals build mental and physical strength. Founder and Chief Medical Officer of ImagineMD, Alex Lickerman, direct primary care physician at ImagineMD, spent the first 20 years of his career as a leader at one of the top academic medical centers in the world, the University of Chicago, where he ran primary care for seven years and taught generations of today’s leaders in medicine. There he enjoyed a reputation as “a doctor’s doctor,” caring for many physicians who are themselves today considered leaders in their fields. He is a master clinician, routinely diagnosing medical problems that leave other doctors puzzled.

A nationally recognized speaker on the topic of resilience, his book, The Undefeated Mind: On the Science of Constructing an Indestructible Self, details evidence-based steps one can take to increase resilience and formed the basis of the landmark Resilience Project, which he created while at the University of Chicago. His second book, The Ten Worlds: The New Psychology of Happiness, details an entirely new psychological paradigm that explains how it’s possible to achieve a kind of happiness that can’t be destroyed by anything. Living by medicine’s most famous aphorism, “The secret of the care of the patient lies in caring for the patient,” he counts his tenacity in designing preventive care interventions, managing acute and chronic disease, and making the right diagnoses as his greatest strengths.
