NEJM Resident360 Discussion Focuses on Physician Wellness

Dink Jardine, MD, chair of the ACGME's Back to Bedside Advisory Work Group, recently participated in an engaging discussion on NEJM Resident360 about physician well-being and wellness with a focus on the resident and fellow experience and system-level interventions. Experts representing health care administrators, program directors, faculty members, residents/fellows, and recent graduates participated in the discussion

In a summary post, Dr. Jardine highlights the following ways for residents and fellows to influence system-level change to improve their own and their colleagues' environment:

  • Connecting to combat burnout
  • Recognizing struggle in yourself and others (and getting help when needed)
  • Engaging with leadership to implement innovation
  • Focusing on developing opportunities for meaningful and purposeful work
