Alex Lickerman, M.D. is a primary care physician, Assistant Vice President for Student Health and Counseling Services at the University of Chicago, and a practicing Nichiren Buddhist. Eastern philosophy meets Western science in a harmonious blend within Dr. Lickerman's mind and heart, where an expert knowledge of the most up-to-date scientific studies resides peacefully (for the most part) next to the accumulated wisdom of 2,500 years of Buddhist thinking.

Dr. Lickerman's considerable speaking experience includes presentations given at medical conferences throughout his career, including a talk to an audience of over 3,000 at a Pri-Med Conference put on jointly by the University of Chicago and Northwestern University. He has also had extensive experience treating the sickest of the sick at the University of Chicago in the most compassionate manner possible as well as teaching medical trainees to do the same. 

In addition to writing a regular blog, Happiness in This World, Dr. Lickerman has been quoted in Crain's Chicago Business, AOL Health, Playboy, the Chicago Tribune, and TIME, and has written articles for Psychology Today and Medicine on the Midway. He wrote a television pilot called Sessions that was optioned by DreamWorks Television as well as several movie screenplays, including an adaptation of Milton's Paradise Lost.

Dr. Lickerman's undergraduate and medical degrees are from the University of Chicago. He is currently developing a program at the University of Chicago designed to increase resilience in students based on the principles he describes in The Undefeated Mind.
