Resident Well-Being

Community Memorial Healthcare places a strong emphasis on physician wellness and our Graduate Medical Education program has implemented a comprehensive resident well-being plan.

Our Director of Behavioral Health is responsible for the implementation of the Well-being program and its continued development. The program is supported by a Resident Well-Being Committee, and elected Resident Representatives are actively involved in that committee.

To foster positive resident professional growth and development, we have incorporated a range of experiences into our Well-Being Program, including:

  • Resident Forums where residents meet with their program representatives to share ideas and concerns.
  • Resident retreats that foster resident bonding and enhance peer support.
  • Resident meetings where residents meet individually twice per year with our Director of Behavioral Health. Both our Director of Spiritual Care and Director of Behavioral Health have an “open door” policy for all residents, providing them with 24 hour access to support.
  • Resident Well-Being Committee, which includes one Resident Representative from each specialty. The committee meets at least quarterly to confidentially address concerns or ideas residents have related to well-being in our Graduate Medical Education program and individual residents’ health and wellness. The committee offers suggestions to the Resident Forum and the Graduate Medical Education office to proactively address concerns.
  • Resident resources, which include all institutional well-being resources. This includes, but is not limited to, full access to the Calm App, EAP Life Matters, and Talk Space. Graduate Medical Education maintains a screened list of community mental health resources, including providers who can accommodate resident schedules and who waive 24-hour cancellation fees for residents delayed by patient care. The library website also contains a collection of well-being resources.
  • Didactics on ethics, professionalism, communication, and physician wellness.
  • Free membership at our Community Memorial Wellness & Fitness Center
  • Resident social activities

We encourage resident research in areas of physician wellness, burnout, and the doctor-patient relationship.
