The root cause of physician burnout is the practice environment in which they work. The only way to dramatically reduce the prevalence of clinician burnout is to tackle the myriad factors that distract from clinical medicine, create stress, and add burdens to a physician’s workday. But hope is not lost – there are many tangible and actionable strategies that medical groups, community health centers, hospital medical staffs, residency programs, and other physician organizations can employ to improve the working lives of their clinicians.
The Bay Area Physician Wellness Collaborative aims to bring together medical group leaders, chief wellness officers, wellness committee chairs, and others who have been charged with “fixing the physician burnout problem” and providing them with expert guidance, tools and resources, a forum for sharing experiences and best practices, and a network of peers to support their work.
We invite you to join our efforts to restore joy to the practice of medicine, together.
