First Annual Physician Well-being Symposium

This symposium will bring together leaders in physician well-being to provide the opportunity to cultivate resilience and renewed purpose and connect with fellow leaders in innovative wellness strategies.  Attendees will gain insights, skills, and resources to address burnout through individual and systems-level solutions, collaborate and align efforts, and create a culture that values physician well-being.

Together, we can reinvent our practices to thrive.
