“Physician, Heal Thyself”: The Importance of Creating Resiliency
Emergency medicine can be highly rewarding, but it can also be extremely draining. Longevity in the specialty is tied to your ability to be both emotionally and physically resilient. These traits are partially inborn but can be learned and developed.
"Physician Heal Thyself: The Importance of Creating Resilience" presented during ACEP14 by ACEP's President-Elect, Jay Kaplan, MD, FACEP, defines "resiliency" with respect to emergency medicine, reviews the research behind the benefits of developing resiliency, and provides ways to foster and maintain a resilient mindset that can improve your life and the care you give to your patients. This lecture is free for ACEP members.
