The Well-being Program combines specific well-being curricula, personal skill building, and institutional strategies to reduce burnout in fellow physicians. The program targets several key drivers for physician burnout and includes a novel curriculum focused on fatigue mitigation, self-care, resiliency and stress mitigation, and skills targeting breathing, movement, and mindfulness.
As part of our Fellow Well-being Program we are excited to offer the Reflective Conversation Series. The series offers conversations reflecting issues facing fellows from two different perspectives: how an issue influences my medical practice and life - Meaning in Medicine; and how an issue affects me professionally and personally - Finding ME in Medicine.
Each session starts with a theme that is based on a needs assessment of fellows and topics that they would like to discuss and explore further. However, sessions are never restricted to the topics suggested and fellows may bring up any issues they would like to raise.
We provide several hours of curriculum as part of the Fellows' College, targeting fatigue mitigation, self-care, resiliency, stress management and a unique hands-on program through a partnership with WellMD. Faculty who have a prominent role in wellness are featured, such as John Mark and Caroline Okorie, and a specialist from WellMD, Maryam Hamidi.
