Thriving, not Surviving - Episode 9

Are you well? In this episode we tackle the issue of physician wellness. What does that mean? Why is it a problem? And what can we do to thrive, not just survive, in medicine? We discuss strategies with EM physicians of all levels, including Cal ACEP President, Dr. Aimee Moulin, and Dr. Katren Tyler, Vice Chair of Wellness for the UC Davis Department of Emergency Medicine.

How do you define physician wellness? What is your personal recipe for THRIVING, not just surviving? Join the conversation on social media, @empulsepodcast, or at ucdavisem.com.
