Health professional burnout is rising at an alarming rate and the TMF Physician’s Health Program is experiencing an increase in referrals for this and related emotional and mental health problems.
The TMF is working with partner organizations to address rising rates of burnout, depression, and suicide among physicians and other medical professionals in Tennessee. State Volunteer Mutual Insurance Company (SVMIC), Tennessee’s largest physician insurer, is one of those partners and in its latest newsletter, SVMIC features the first of a four-part series on physician burnout authored by TMF Medical Director Dr. Michael Baron.
Read Part 1 of Dr. Baron’s series, “Physician Burnout: Recognize the Signs,” in the January 2018 edition of the SVMIC Sentinel.
If you or someone you know is experiencing burnout, please don’t wait until the problem becomes career- or life-threatening. Call the TMF at 615-467-6411 or use the contact form on our website.
