Physicians devote their entire careers to helping others achieve health and wellness. The rigorous demands of medical school, residency and practice give them the specialized skills and clinical knowledge they need to provide the most advanced care possible. Though their dedicated focus and specific training allow them to exceed in medical practice, their intense schedules often leave them with little time to develop other important personal and professional life skills. As a result, physicians often enter their careers unable to make wise decisions, set priorities and manage relationships that ensure success in practice and personal life. Ultimately, we believe physicians who take better care of themselves can provide better care for others.
To ease the transition from residency to practice by providing the resources physicians need to develop critical interpersonal and professional skills, realize their purpose and achieve a healthy work-life balance.
By helping physicians build fulfilling lives and careers that operate in harmony, our goal is to see positive changes reflected not only in the lives of individuals, but in the greater environments of hospitals and communities. Ultimately, we aim to facilitate an open, forward-thinking culture in medicine leading to the development of new products and services designed to enhance the lives of patients and practitioners alike.
Everything we do is grounded in education. Our programs deliver the tools, training and support necessary to assist physicians with personal and professional development, life balance and career management.
We can only achieve our ideals with the support of our educational partners, sponsors, and the greater medical community, including program directors, residents and fellows, graduate medical educators, practicing physicians and organizations at large. With a common philosophy, each of us can do our part to help physicians navigate the changing healthcare industry, manage personal priorities and ultimately lead a more purposeful existence.
Though our initiatives focus on physicians, our efforts create positive outcomes for many. First and foremost, our programs help physicians create a more balanced life, a growing and fulfilling practice, a desired lifestyle and deeply rewarding relationships.
Naturally, these outcomes trickle down to create a beneficial environment within hospitals, which experience more motivated and dedicated medical staff, increased physician retention and a team focused on furthering the health and wellness of the service community.
Finally, the greater community is impacted, because physicians who are balanced and contented are stronger leaders, doctors, spouses, parents and friends.
