Medical school can be stressful. There are many resources available to us that can help.
We hope you'll find us a one-stop link to reliable information, useful tips and helpful resources both to stay well and prevent burnout, but also to intervene if you find yourself, as many of us do, solidly in the realm of "unwell."
Did you know?
- Physician burnout has been shown to negatively affect empathy and patient care (Baldwin, et. al 1997)
- Depression and disengagement in first-year medical students has been shown to predict psychological morbidity and burnout later in student's career (Dahlin, et. al 2007)
For your own health and happiness and also for the benefit of your present and future patients.
