This six-week, mobile-platform based foundational program helps physicians to build the skills to cultivate their own personal wellbeing and resilience. Burnout is a critical issue among physicians. Those experiencing burnout are more likely to develop alcohol abuse/dependence, and are at an increased risk of developing depression and suicidal ideation. The program was developed with input from health care leaders and can be accessed anytime, anywhere - while going for a run, on the commute to work, or while relaxing at home.

Topics include:

  • Surviving the Challenges of the Healthcare Environment

  • Mindfulness for Wellbeing

  • Lifestyle Change: How to Get Unstuck

  • Working with Thoughts and Emotions

  • Discovering Purpose, Meaning and Joy

  • Relationships and Resilience

Weekly Activities

Each week's activities will take you about 45 minutes to complete:

  • Listen to an interview with an expert

  • Learn easy strategies to try on the job

  • Develop skills that will become second nature over time

  • Review key points 

In addition, each week we will provide PDFs of material you can save or print for future use, along with other interesting resources to pursue if you are interested.
