As more female physicians enter the workforce and face challenges that can lead to burnout, the AHA has joined with five medical organizations to bring together early- to mid-career female physicians for networking, mentorship and leadership training. In addition to the AHA, partners in the Women’s Wellness through Equity and Leadership project include the American Academy of Pediatrics, American Academy of Family Physicians, American College of Physicians, American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and American Psychiatric Association. “We are thrilled to be an inaugural partner in this work to support female physicians who make dynamic contributions to our health systems and patients,” said Jay Bhatt, D.O., AHA senior vice president and chief medical officer. “We know that no single solution will address burnout and build resilience. But by coming together and taking action under the Women’s Wellness through Equity and Leadership project, we will be able to work on evidence-based solutions and provide meaningful resources to female physicians who are playing an important role in shaping health care delivery that patients and families can be proud of.”
