Fortifying Yourself Against Burnout
July 18 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Our panelists will challenge you to consider your personal resilience. What can we do? Burnout is an occupational injury, but how can we take care of ourselves and our teams? Do we focus on our interests beyond medicine? Change careers? Can we seek mental health resources?
