Wellness and Burnout Screening Tool
During GME training and even afterwards during independent practice, the risk of burnout is high. It's important to self assess and evaluate your own resilience and risk for burnout throughout your career, beginning during your training. Below is a link to a self-assessment well being screening tool that is free and confidential. This link connects to a free 7 question screening tool that evaluates fatigue, depression, burnout, anxiety/stress, and mental/physical quality of life. This tool is anonymous and no information is shared with anyone. Graduate Medical Education won't have access to any of the information; the only information available to GME will be the number of trainees using the screening tool over time from our institution.
Wellness in Training Committee
The University of Kentucky GME Wellness In Training Committee is devoted to helping GME learners achieve their highest potential through the integration of the physical, social, emotional, environmental and economic aspects of wellness. This committee was established to develop recommendations for a systematic and sustainable approach to support wellness and resilience within our GME trainees. This committee is chaired by Dr. Asha Shenoi, Assistant Dean, Graduate Medical Education. The Wellness In Training committee has a broad representation and input from house staff, residency program directors and faculty from different disciplines including pharmacy and behavioral sciences.
We are looking for trainees to volunteer to participate as committee members, so if you are interested in driving wellness efforts in your program, please email the chair, Dr. Shenoi at email@example.com.
