Well-Being in Academic Medicine

“Our well-being, and the well-being of our teams, ultimately affects the health and well-being of our patients and communities.”

Marsha Rappley, MD
AAMC Immediate Past Chair

Well-being in academic medicine has emerged as a critical issue facing faculty, researchers, residents, and students. The AAMC has issued a statement on clinician well-being, and participates in the National Academy of Medicine’s Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience, a network of 150 (and growing) organizations dedicated to promoting clinician well-being across all career stages and specialties. The following resources help explain and address the challenges.

Please let us know if you have any suggested books, articles, or other resources to share with your colleagues and we will consider including on these pages.
