Preventing Physician Burnout

“If we don’t take care of ourselves, we are not going to be here for the kids who need us," says Joseph K. Williams, MD, FACS, FAAP, Chief of Plastic Surgery; Medical Director of the Center for Cleft and Craniofacial Disorders and Co-Chair of the Physician Wellness Leadership Committee at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

Children’s is taking proactive steps to prevent burnout among our physicians. We continue to expand programs and add resources that help support physicians’ mental, emotional, social and physical wellness. If you have ideas for additional support, contact Kathleen Smith, Senior Wellness Program Coordinator.
