Physician Wellness

Are you passionate about physician wellness? Are you a leader in your health care organization working on preventing physician burnout?

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. Click here to learn more.


Looking for support?

The
ACCMA Physician Wellness Program is a collection of resources developed out of the recognition of the emotional and mental stress that caring for patients can have on physicians. Managing your stress and mental wellness is as important as managing your physical health. Taking care of yourself and encouraging others to practice self-care will sustain and extend your ability to care for your patients. Explore some of our many resources below.
