Physician Well-Being: What’s Changed and What’s More Important than Ever in the Wake of COVID-19

Course Description

Working to address physician well-being is a complex but highly important issue, and the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the urgency and need to support our healthcare professionals.

In this webinar, participants will learn about concepts related to physician well-being and the predominant drivers that contribute to a model of well-being. This will be explained within the context of the COVID-19 crisis in New York City as viewed through the lens of a well-being leader located within the Mount Sinai Health System.

We will also discuss considerations surrounding how the pandemic has influenced drivers of well-being and led to a significant pivot in programming and priorities. Finally, participants will have an opportunity to examine how to frame an ongoing case for well-being that they can bring to bear at their home practices and institutions.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this learning activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the factors affecting physician well-being
  • Summarize the circumstances in New York City that have impacted the emotional well-being of the healthcare work force in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and how these experiences can be applied elsewhere in the U.S.
  • Identify changes needed to initiatives aimed at addressing physician well-being in the context of the COVID-19 “new normal”
  • Identify the importance of continuing to prioritize physician well-being under the present circumstances
