Fellows Wellness Curriculum

The initiative involves a designed curriculum that includes modules on resiliency, managing priorities, empathy and positivity, and communicating bad news.  This initial curriculum is currently being evaluated by 15 fellowship training programs serving as ‘beta sites.’ Faculty members from each program have undergone specific training for this wellness curriculum, and will facilitate presentation of these modules to the fellows at their respective institutions. Data will be assessed, evaluating burnout and awareness of burnout symptoms, educational components of each of the modules, as well as adoption of wellness practices.
