Physician health and wellness should be a priority when it comes to continuous learning, especially given the rapid pace of change in the medical profession.
Yet many physicians are not trained in the non-clinical skills they need to manage issues related to their own wellbeing.
This page provides links to courses, programs and information on non-clinical continuing personal and professional development that physicians can use to improve their own wellness and that of their colleagues.
These resources also give health care leaders the opportunity to support their physicians’ professional development in areas such as:
- Privacy and confidentiality
- Mental health
- Mental health first aid
- Reducing stigma
Learning can take place individually via online or face-to-face sessions, or through custom courses designed for teams or groups within your workplace.
