Physician Resiliency Resources 

Burnout, by definition, is a physical or mental collapse caused by overwork or stress. Sadly, physicians are facing burnout at an alarming rate and in direct proportion to the increasing complexities of today's health care environment.  This page will serve as an ongoing, expanding resource depository for our members. If you have any resources that you'd like to share on this page, please e-mail them to Ginnie Flynn along with the link to the information. If you have PDF or other content that you'd like to post, we require express written permission of the author.
