Physician Wellness Resources

Physician wellness, physician well-being, professional fulfillment, resilience, and burnout are all terms used frequently these days. SFMMS has recently re-established a Physician Wellness Committee to identify and evaluate the many resources currently available, identify unmet needs in the local physician community, and recommend strategies for SFMMS to address those needs and support our local physicians.

Here are some of the resources available:

  • MIEC Wellness - offering a toolbox of resources for physicians and their practice, whether it’s to improve the administrative efficiency of their office or access the appropriate wellness tools for themselves and other staff. The site also includes access to the Mayo Clinic's Well-Being Index and a confidential wellness tracking tool.
  • Well Physician California - a subsidiary of the California Medical Association, Well Physician CA is in development to be the country’s most comprehensive physician wellness program. In the coming months, SFMMS will collaborate with the CMA and Well Physician CA to offer local programs related to wellness, including discussion groups. Check back for updates!
  • American Medical Association Physician Health - the AMA offers articles and practical resources for address physician health and reducing burnout, including a 'burnout management tip of the week' you can subscribe to and receive in your email box each week.
  • SFMMS Facebook Group - SFMMS has set up a Facebook group where we will share resources, events and coordinate local meet ups for Bay Area physicians who are seeking connection and community with colleagues.
  • SFMMS Women in Medicine Program - SFMMS is developing a Women in Medicine Program that will launch later in 2020.

This list of resources will be updated regularly so check back often!
