Physician Peer Groups

Connect with Your Colleagues on a Deeper Level

Joy of Medicine is providing Sacramento area physicians with the opportunity to meet with a group of colleagues that understand and identify with what it means to be a physician. Physician Peer Groups are not group therapy, but a means for physicians to connect with one another to discuss personal and professional successes and challenges.

Meet monthly with a group of colleagues who understand and identify with what it means to be a physician. Peer groups are held in a local physician's home and are facilitated by a vetted life coach. RSVPs are required to participate. Please contact Sam Mello at smello@ssvms.org to join a group!
