Office of Faculty Wellness

Our mission is to promote a culture of health and professional well-being that empowers our faculty to reach their full academic and personal potential allowing our organization to function optimally as a leader in the advancement of health care. 

What We Believe

As an institution, we must support the same principles of excellence, innovation, teamwork, and compassion that we value in patient care, education, and research in the development and support of our faculty. To fulfill our mission, we cultivate the following for our faculty: 

  • Culture of Community

    Create a culture of community at work with a focus on our shared mission and purpose, which acknowledges the importance of professional fulfillment and its impact on our mission, and is actively committed to assessing and tracking standardized measures of faculty well-being.

  • Faculty Development

    Engage leadership and achieve institutional, departmental, divisional, and clinic buy-in for the importance of faculty academic development and empowerment in the achievement of our institutional mission including reinvestment in our faculty members to help us achieve our professional goals.

  • Support at a Local Level

    Empower and support faculty at a local level (department, division, clinic, hospital unit) to identify areas of improvement and support development of interventions that improve satisfaction with work, promote better work-life balance and professional flexibility, enhance loyalty and satisfaction, and create a sense of common purpose within the clinic and hospital unit environments.

  • Self-care Resources

    Provide resources to promote self-care and self-awareness of burnout and emotional exhaustion, as well as support systems specific to faculty that are available for peer support and professional development.

  • Scientific Study of Well-being Interventions

    Advocate, facilitate, and identify funding for the scientific study of interventions targeted at enhancing faculty wellness and well-being and their effects on patient care, quality, value, and faculty productivity.
