The Coalition for Physician Well-Being

The Coalition for Physician Well-Being was established in 2010 by physicians and health care leaders in response to noticeable low morale and unhappiness among their peers. The term "burnout" soon emerged.

Recognizing the urgency of this issue, comprehensive research was undertaken, culminating in the creation of the Medicus Integra® survey. This tool provides evidence-based recommendations to health care systems, hospitals, and physician groups, aimed at enhancing the well-being of their medical professionals. For a deeper understanding of the Medicus Integra survey and the associated award, please visit The Coalition for Physician Well-Being's website.

Advent Health, as a founding member of The Coalition for Physician Well-Being, has played a critical role in our endeavors. Their consistent financial and in-kind contributions support our ongoing mission "to promote meaning, purpose and joy in the practice of medicine" both within the Advent Health network and the broader medical community.

Medicus Integra©

The Medicus Integra© Award was conceived and developed by the Coalition for Physician Well-Being, based upon the belief that physician resilience and well-being is not only good for physicians, but is conducive to healthy organizational culture and essential to quality patient care. For these reasons, it is in the best interest of healthcare organizations to give attention to the well-being of physicians and demonstrate intentionality in developing strategies and initiatives to prevent burnout and promote physician wellness.
