Why Physician Wellness
When our physicians take care of themselves, they’re able to provide better care for our patients at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. We are committed to nurturing and supporting physicians in all areas of wellness—mental, emotional, social and physical. By approaching wellness holistically, physicians can help prevent the threats of physician burnout and stress at every angle, all while fostering resilience and providing the best patient care.

A note from Will Border, MD, Children's Chief Physician Wellness Officer
Taking care of our young patients is a special privilege that drives every Children’s physician to bring their very best to work each day. As reflected in our organization’s promise of People First, Children Always, it’s equally important for Children’s to take care of our physicians. As Chief Physician Wellness Officer, it’s my honor and responsibility to help develop and deliver the programs that protect our valued physicians from the unique challenges of the medical profession, with the goal of ensuring our physicians experience professionally fulfilling careers at Children’s.
