Physician well being Institute

The Quadruple Aim of Healthcare - Healthcare that is affordable, high quality, and patient-centered while helping our caregivers rediscover joy, meaning, and purpose in their work, is a relatively new concept in healthcare and one that is the focus of the vast majority of the work that Innovations in Resilience does within healthcare.

Innovations in Resilience Physician Well being Institute is a program that has been developed by Physicians, Surgeons, and Healthcare Administrators specifically for Physician Leadership Development.

This program is built and scheduled to accommodate busy physicians so they are able to quickly gain practical insights and skills directly applicable to their practice. The program provides a solid understanding of physician leadership and burnout prevention and their importance in the emerging health care delivery environment. Most importantly, participants will develop the tools necessary to become effective in taking on the issues and priorities that will reawaken joy, meaning, and purpose in their work and personal lives.
