INTEGRIS GME is engaging in an ongoing effort to address provider burnout and resilience from an institutional level. There is an increasing awareness in the medical community that physician burnout is a growing problem that affects physicians not just during training, but throughout their careers. However, residency training is a particularly vulnerable time for the development of burnout and compassion fatigue. The GME Wellness strategy includes multiple components that align with initiatives within the larger organization of INTEGRIS.



INTEGRIS Wellness Residents

We are a group of peer-selected upper level residents from multiple specialties who recognize the importance of wellness in the medical education setting.  Residency can be a stressful experience and greater awareness regarding physician burnout has highlighted the importance of resident well-being.  To that end we serve as a personal resource for our co-residents after adverse professional or personal events.  We also work together to establish departmental programs and activities which promote and help maintain physical and mental well-being during medical training.  



Mission Statement:

Our mission is to implement wellness-focused programs and provide resources for residents at INTEGRIS Health thereby enhancing the residency education experience and combating physician burnout.
