Course Description

It’s startling to think that 40%-60% of physicians experience burnout in their careers. Even more so that 50% residents experience burnout too. While burnout is a very real concern that physicians and physician leaders deal with, many of them don’t feel comfortable speaking up for themselves or when they see others struggling. In this 7 video course we discuss what burnout is, how it manifests, why it’s important to the overall health of the organization, and what physicians and leaders can do support each other and how everyone can learn to practice self-compassion and self-care.

The effects of unchecked stress and burnout can pose a threat to your culture and patient care environment. There is collective recognition that the prevalence of burnout has reached a critical level within healthcare. Yet, many feel trapped what to do next and a means to build a climate of resiliency and agility. And there are no easy solutions. This course is designed to build leader, clinician, and physician awareness of burnout, grow comfort in recognizing and intervening when burnout is affecting our team members, and implement interpersonal and institutional strategies to mitigate burnout and build a culture of resilience.  Expand your capacity to uphold a positive, solution-oriented environment and temperament in our organizations with these lessons that you can immediately apply.
