Find Your Joy of Medicine

Burnout is a buzzword that physicians are hearing about from colleagues, medical groups, health systems, CMA, AMA, specialty societies and from the media.   It is no wonder – physician burnout is at near-epidemic levels. According to The Mayo Clinic Proceedings, in 2015 over 54% of physicians reported suffering symptoms of burnout.

Burnout is complex and has many causes and symptoms. With the unprecedented change in the healthcare delivery system in the United States, many physicians feel that their role as healers, comforters, and listeners is diminished.

As your colleagues, the physician leadership at SSVMS understands the struggles physicians face on a daily basis.  As you professional organization, SSVMS is determined to help physicians in the Sacramento region find happiness and fulfillment in your profession.  Our goal is to engage physicians in the Sacramento region in a long-term conversation that will help physicians recognize the signs of burnout, build meaningful resiliency and help physicians thrive.
