Description

Increasing administrative responsibilities due to regulatory pressures and evolving payment and care delivery models reduce the amount of time physicians spend delivering direct patient care. Physicians in residency and fellowship training often experience depression, lack of mental resiliency and symptoms of burnout caused by demanding workloads, nights on call and other common stressors. Residency programs that create a sustainable culture of wellness and provide trainees with tools and resources to manage stress and burnout will produce more engaged physicians who can provide high-quality care to their patients. Residency and fellowship training is a challenging period in a physician’s career, with many personal and professional stressors that can lead to burnout. Physicians in training are at increased risk for depression compared to their peers. Wellness programs implemented as part of the training program can help guide trainees on what they can personally do in their lives to help avoid burnout. By providing opportunities for residents and fellows to experience a supportive program environment that is committed to wellness, physicians will become engaged in wellness activities that will become integrated into their lives as they continue in their careers.
