The ACGME has created this page to share with programs, institutions, residents, and fellows resources that promote a culture of physician well-being and provide support in the case of burnout, depression, or suicide.
The initial set of resources grew out of a collaboration with the ACGME, Mayo Clinic, and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). Learn More
The ACGME will regularly update this page as new resources become available.
This four-minute video advises medical students, residents, and fellows on how to support each other, express concern to peers, and encourage help-seeking behavior.

Combating Burnout, Promoting Physician Well-being Building Blocks for a Healthy Learning Environment in GME
In this webinar developed from the popular session at the 2016 Annual Educational Conference, Drs. Carol Bernstein and Lyuba Konopasek provide a hands-on approach on how to conduct a needs assessment for developing a resident well-being plan. This allows designated institutional officials, program directors, and program coordinators to identify stressors and supports, along with curricular innovations, coaching strategies, and faculty development activities to use in the clinical learning environment.
