Keys to Physician Wellness: From Burnout to
Professional Satisfaction

Wednesday, August 24, 2016 – Anaheim Marriott, Anaheim, CA

This day-long workshop is designed for physicians, medical leadership, medical staff administrators and others interested in improving physician satisfaction, health and wellbeing on an individual and organizational level.

Local and national experts will address core issues from the point of view of the individual physician as well as the system-wide vantage point of the medical center or institution. They will present the latest research on physician mental health, burnout and disruptive behavior and demonstrate implementable tools and techniques.

Talks by Jo Shapiro, MD, from the Center for Professionalism and Peer Support at Brigham and Women’s Medical Center in Boston, James Pichert, PhD, from the Center for Patient and Professional Advocacy at Vanderbilt, and Christine Moutier, MD from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention will include case illustrations and enough discussion that you will go home with an understanding of what has worked in settings similar to yours.
