In 2011, 45% of U.S. physicians had at least one symptom of professional burnout, according to a study from the Department of Medicine Program on Physician Well-Being at Mayo Clinic. That number rose to 54% in 2014. At the Physician Vitality Institute, we work with doctors, help your doctors to rejuvenate themselves, create balance, and create vitality so they can give more to their patients and live the life they are dreaming about. We also create win-win environments for positive patient care and help to create solutions to create a supportive work environment to help relieve stress and burnout through systems that work.
