Physician Wellness

The physician wellness program at Beaumont Health is in the development phase. Our stated mission is to promote and support healthy emotional and physical well-being of all physicians in the Beaumont Health system.

Research in the area of workplace satisfaction and joy in one's life revolves around an integration between purpose-driven work and supportive family and friends. As physicians, we want the same thing, personal and professional fulfillment in life. Personal fulfillment can be attained by doing purposeful work with a trusted team. 

The individual and team successes depend on:

  • a culture of wellness within the organization
  • efficiency of practice
  • personal resilience

This has been well described and researched by the Stanford Medicine Well MD team.

The programs that are being developed will:

  • promote self-compassion and personal growth
  • collectively create a meaningful, productive, compassionate workplace that encourages and empowers physicians to work in a community to support one another. 
  • develop personal skills which will help us thrive in the stressful environment inherent to the practice of medicine, and enable us to support our colleagues.
