Physician Well Being

Being a family physician is a challenging job. The AAFP is committed to optimizing the well-being of family doctors and reducing burnout.

The AAFP has a Physician Health First initiative with numerous resources including a well-being check, resources to prioritize family physician well-being (such as practicing self-care, finding joy, and fighting burnout), and a well-being planner.
