Physician Peer Groups

Joy of Medicine Peer Groups provide 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.

Peer groups meet monthly and are held in a local physician’s home and are facilitated by a vetted life coach or psychologist. RSVPs are required to participate.

Contact Sam Mello at smello@ssvms.org to join a group!
