The AGCME recently launched AWARE Well-Being Resources to provide the GME community on-demand tools to address stress and burnout among clinicians. The resources, available free of charge, are part of the organization’s broader physician well-being initiative.

In a statement announcing the resources, ACGME Chief of Staff and Chief Education and Organizational Development Officer Timothy P. Brigham, MDiv, PhD, said, “This important collection of resources, named AWARE, is another key piece in our overall approach to helping reduce burnout and stress, and create an environments where physicians thrive and provide quality patient care.”

The initial offering of resources includes:

  • A two-hour video workshop aimed at program directors and designated institutional officials (DIO) that focuses on cognitive skills and strategies to provide programs with a model for addressing well-being with residents.
  • A mobile app that provides individual physicians cognitive behavioral therapy practices in order to alleviate common cognitive routines that contribute to stress and burnout.
  • Two series of podcasts. The first series instructs individual clinicians about  strategies to enhance their well-being. The second series connects program directors and DIOs with resources to support clinician well-being via local systems and curricula.
