Wellness Summit Inspires Health Care Leaders

More than 60 health system leaders and other stakeholders gathered in Raleigh on Oct. 17-18 for the Physician Wellness Summit, hoped to be the first in ongoing annual summits on issues surrounding physician wellness. National and local experts shared insights and activities to address topics such as what regulatory agencies like the NC Medical Board can do to address physician wellness; how practices and health systems can create an organizational structure that fosters wellness and why ensuring physicians and PAs are healthy and feel professionally fulfilled is good for patients and the bottom line.

Many who attended the Summit hold decision-making roles in their organizations. The goal of the Summit was to raise awareness among these leaders and prompt action to address the serious challenges facing physicians and PAs who practice medicine in today’s health care environment.

“The Physician Wellness Summit [addresses] an overdue topic,” remarked Roger Austin, MD of Lake Norman Pulmonary & Sleep in Mooresville.

The Summit was organized by the North Carolina Consortium for Physician Resilience and Retention, of which the North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) is a founding member.
