CHARM: Collaborative for Healing and Renewal in Medicine

CHARM-Arnold P. Gold Foundation Charter on Physician Well-Being published in JAMA addresses challenges to physician well-being such as dissatisfaction, symptoms of burnout, relatively high rates of depression, and increased suicide risk affecting physicians from premedical training through their professional careers, observing that these problems are associated with suboptimal patient care, lower patient satisfaction, decreased access to care, and increased health care costs.

CHARM Annotated Bibliography of Evidence-Based Interventions for Medical Student, Trainee and Practicing Physician Wellbeing offers a summary of research not only for medical schools and residency/fellowship programs, but also for health-care system leaders and policy makers at large. This bibliography is a reminder that programs are not alone in facing these challenges, and that the collective wisdom of decades of medical educators, practicing clinicians and researchers, is an extraordinary foundation for finding effective ways to optimize our present and future work environments and reduce burnout in our profession.
