For many new physicians, residency can be a major source of stress and fatigue, which affects their ability to care for themselves and their patients. Recently, the ACGME added a Well-Being section to its Common Program Requirements. Although it is not a new problem, issues regarding physician mental health have been slow to address thanks to certain lingering stigmas.

Resident Well-Being is a tool for residency program directors, coordinators, and faculty to teach residents how to pay more attention to their self-care and understand the influence their wellness has on the care they give their patients. This resource will specifically address how to help residents with burnout, depression, stress, and achieving a healthy work-life balance. Training tools are included, as well as case studies and examples from various programs about the tools they have already implemented for resident wellness.

This book will help you:

   - Assess your program for resident wellness
   - Identify signs of burnout and depression in residents
   - Create a safe working and social environment for residents to excel
