Physician burnout is not just a national epidemic, it has become a concerning issue right here on the First Coast. We must take some time to recognize that we, as medical professionals, are indeed human beings and have many stressors that are beyond our control. Sometimes, talking to someone in a truly confidential manner can make a difference.
The DCMS Foundation’s Physician Wellness Program is a completely free and completely confidential resource for DCMS Members. Simply call our hotline at (904) 631-1446 and the DCMS Foundation will pay for up to six visits with a counselor. DCMS has worked with the Florida Board of Medicine to ensure these visits are not reportable to your medical license and will not have any impact on relicensure.
If stress or burnout is affecting you, I personally ask that you call today. For yourself and for your patients.
