The Physician Well-Being module allows students to explore and better understand the systems factors that contribute to physician burn-out as well as discuss why this is a problem for clinicians, patients, and society. Individual and systems-level solutions to help address this pervasive issue are discussed. Students learn by engaging in pre-reading and writing, which they receive feedback on before participating in a live workshop. The workshop features a panel discussion involving a diverse group of physicians speaking about how this issue has impacted them as well as ways they have worked to address these challenges. Students have the opportunity to discuss their personal concerns about maintaining wellness during their clinical training and careers and brainstorm with one another as well as faculty regarding potential solutions.
