Physician Task Force Seeks Input About Burnout

Dear Colleagues:

Undoubtedly, you have heard about physician burnout and the importance of physician wellness, and have wondered what is being done to prevent burnout and promote wellness. Behind the scenes, we have assembled a team that we feel represents the entire medical staff, and we have obtained the necessary administrative support.

Now is the time when we need your help. In order to make a real impact, we need to know what is causing your burnout: solo/private practitioners have different issues from employed/group/faculty physicians; internists struggle with different issues than surgeons or pediatricians; and within each specialty, physicians at different stages of their career have different causes of burnout.

Realizing your time is important, we hope that during the next two weeks you will take a few minutes out of your busy day to complete the anonymous CS Physician Wellness Survey. We want to know what areas of wellness you would like to see this committee address.

Together we can make change. Thank you for your cooperation.

From the Physician Wellness Task Force
