Physician Wellness

The Anesthesiology Physician Wellness Committee is dedicated to supporting practices that encourage anesthesia physician wellbeing and health, while also addressing the increasing rates of burnout in our specialty.

The committee will work to encourage and guide changes in both the physician’s workplace, e.g. more administrative support, more flexible working hours, peer support, debriefing support after challenging clinical/professional encounters, support through career transitions and personal life e.g. networking opportunities, financial advice. 

It is the Committee’s guiding principle that physician happiness and quality patient perioperative care are directly linked. The Committee will be responsive to members needs, and develop goals, programs and initiatives based on feedback from anesthesia physicians as well as scholarly work in the area of physician wellbeing and burnout.
