Spectrum Health is committed to the wellness of our residents and fellows. Being a physician is a higher calling and honorable profession. It can be extremely rewarding, yet emotionally and physically exhausting. Psychological, emotional, and physical wellbeing are critical in the development of the competent, caring and resilient physician. We are dedicated to improving the learning environment to achieve a culture of respect and accountability for physician well-being.

We recognize that residents are at high risk of burnout. This can be associated with depression and other psychologic concerns. If you are struggling, please reach out to your chief residents, program coordinators, and program directors.

You are also strongly encouraged to take advantage of our Employee Assistance Program, Encompass. Encompass is a FREE benefit to all Spectrum Health residents and their families. They offer confidential support at no cost to the client. Encompass offers extended hours that can accommodate your busy schedule.
