Conference on physician health comes to San Francisco in October

July 26, 2017
Area(s) of Interest: Physician Wellness 

Physicians’ professional wellness is increasingly recognized as being critically important to the delivery of high-quality health care. Physicians strive to achieve an optimal patient experience and provide the highest quality care, while simultaneously facing increasing productivity and documentation demands that often lead to anxiety, fatigue, burnout and depression.

To address this issue, Stanford Medicine, the Mayo Clinic and the American Medical Association (AMA) are collaborating to host the American Conference on Physician Health: Creating an Organizational Foundation to Achieve Joy in Medicine. The conference will take place at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco on October 12-13, 2017.

The conference aims to evaluate and improve professional fulfillment in physicians via a culture of wellness, personal resilience and efficiency of practice. Renowned speakers, poster sessions and panel discussions will provide innovative and practical strategies to promote physician wellness. Through these events, physicians can earn up to 11.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ toward their continuing medical education requirement.

While registration fees are discounted for AMA members, nonmembers are welcome to attend, and can receive an early-bird rate for registering before August 31. Medical students, residents and fellows are also strongly encouraged to attend.
