SSVMS Joy of Medicine Program

Joy of Medicine, a program of the Sierra Sacramento Valley Medical Society (SSVMS), is a community approach to physician wellbeing. Our mission is to help physicians reclaim the joy of practicing medicine through education, advocacy, programs, events, and services which are designed to nurture individual well-being and collegiality. Through research, advocacy and engagement, SSVMS promotes systemic changes to advance physician wellbeing in the Sacramento region. Joy of Medicine  programs and services are provided at no cost to physicians practicing in Sacramento, El Dorado, Yolo, and Placer Counties.  Thank you to our generous partners, who make this program possible.
