There is a strong role for peer support in promoting physician wellness and decreasing burnout.  However, barriers to presence and/or use of peer support programs exist.  This course will demonstrate the importance of such programs and show participants how to take advantage of them and/or implement one effectively.

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Articulate the importance of peer support to physician well-being
  • Recognize if a peer support program exists at their institution
  • Take advantage of peer support
  • Create programs at their institutions if they do not currently exist
