The LIFE Curriculum


If you are an incoming or current house staff, please go to HealthStream to access the LIFE Curriculum. HealthStream redirects you to this page and records your completed required training. However, if you watch the LIFE Curriculum by directly going to the GME website here, then your training will NOT be recorded. You may have to repeat the training.

LIFE is an acronym for:

  • Learning to Address
  • Impairment and
  • Fatigue to
  • Enhance Patient Safety


The LIFE Curriculum is a collaborative effort of Duke University Hospital, the UNC Hospitals, the NC AHEC, and the NC Physician's Health Program to assist graduate medical education programs, their residents, and faculty to prevent, identify, and manage resident fatigue and impairment.

The project is funded in part by a grant from the Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation. For more information, visit The LIFE Curriculum.
