Wellness Resources For Physicians
NBMS Wellness is here to support you and your family in the current climate surrounding COVID-19. We understand that this is a period of exceptional challenge and may heighten the risk of physician burnout and anxiety (among other challenges). The following resources are intended to help support physicians’ already established self-care routines. They are intended to provide gentle suggestions and ideas, not as a substitute for other support if needed. All NBMS programs will continue to offer support during this time over the phone or through videoconferencing.
