Why Is Pediatric Physician Wellness Important?

Just as you first diagnose a patient and then recommend treatment, it’s helpful to first recognize areas of improvement before you start making changes in your life in order to develop your mental, emotional and social wellness. You might feel like there’s not a moment in the day to spare, but taking time to remember your purpose, practice mindfulness and connect with those around you can help you manage stress and combat physician burnout. Taking care of your mental, emotional and social well-being is a priority at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, allowing you to provide the best care possible to all of our patients.

Prioritize your life outside of work and strengthen your support system by spending time with your loved ones.
