Education on Topics Related to the Life of a Physician

We continue to hear from many physicians that, while they are getting education on the business and practice sides of medicine, education on topics related to their life as a physician is much harder to find.

Not sure the difference between physician burnout and stress, or the best coping strategies? Want financial planning education relevant to your stage in life? How about advice on handling competing priorities between home and work?

Physicians have access to education on these issues from the Pennsylvania Medical Society and the Foundation of the Pennsylvania Medical Society.
