“Breaking Through Physician Stress & Burnout”

A 3 day residential CME - 47 Category 1 credits - New Gloucester, Maine

Breaking Through Physician Stress and Burnout CMEIn the last decade, physician stress, and ultimately, burnout, have accelerated at an alarming pace. Feeling lost in the morass of medical practice has become the norm, exacerbated by the increased administrative responsibilities, EMRs, overwhelming work schedules, and a sense of physician devaluation. Bringing balance to one’s life is viewed as “extracurricular” Physician burnout is a specific stress reaction resulting from the burdensome relationship physicians can experience with their work that can result in emotional exhaustion, depersonalization of one’s work, and a declining level of self-esteem.

Maine Medical Educational Trust and DocExecutive offer a 3 day CME, “Breaking Through Physician Stress & Burnout”, to directly address this issue. The workshop is designed to provide a relaxing, stress free environment through which the latest research for improving mental health and replacing emotionally imbalanced behaviors with healthy alternatives will be translated into personal action planning.

Experts in the field of stress reduction and mental health will lead the program, which has been crafted by a distinguished collection of physicians. Objectives for the program are to:

  • recognize symptoms of stress & burnout
  • understand skills that can be used to reduce stress & burnout
  • identify resources for support
  • strategize an ongoing plan for intervening with symptoms
  • create an active, sustainable mental health well being plan

The CME will be held at Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, Maine, and, in addition to lodging and food, all activities will be held in an elegantly restored farmhouse.
