Original Program Date :
Length: 27 Minutes
If you have been wondering how to help your physicians battle burnout and recover the joy of medicine, this session will walk you through the pragmatics of starting a physician counseling or coaching support program. It is based on the AAMSE County CEO workgroup survey of more than two dozen societies with existing member wellness programs. You will leave with a step-by-step how-to toolkit, funded by a Physicians Foundation grant.
