Balance, well-being and synergy come into focus during the Beyond Burnout & Resilience workshop. Also on tap: Spring Institute and networking opportunities.

BOSTON, Mass. — By many accounts, primary care physicians devote more than half of their workday to tasks related to electronic health records during and after clinic hours. These obligations contribute to work-life imbalance, dissatisfaction and a burnout rate around 50 percent.

Physician leaders have similar stressors — and simultaneously must help their people overcome their own work challenges amid today’s high-pressure, ever-changing health care environment that affects personal and professional satisfaction.
