The U.S. healthcare system is rapidly changing in an effort to deliver better care, improve health, and lower costs while providing care for an aging population with a high rate of chronic disease and comorbidities. Among the changes affecting clinical practice are new payment and delivery approaches, EMRs, patient portals, and public reported quality metrics—all of which change the landscape on how care is provided.

As a result of these changes and added pressures, many physicians are burned out, a syndrome characterized by a high degree of emotional exhaustion and depersonalization, and a low sense of control and personal accomplishment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will learn more about the multiple factors contributing to professional stress and burnout, as well as strategies to minimize its impact.
  • Participants will learn the fundamentals and importance of time management in maintaining resilience and life balance.
  • Participants will gain a renewed appreciation for reconnecting with colleagues, rediscovering the soul of medicine, and reclaiming a more joyful and balanced life.

Attendees will be awarded 2.5 AMA PRA Category 1 credit(s)™
