NEJM Resident360 Discussion Focuses on Physician Wellness

9 May 2018

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
