Promoting Physician Well Being & Engagement






Your residency or fellowship can be one of the most rewarding yet challenging times of your life.  The University of Tennessee College of Medicine Chattanooga and its Graduate Medical Education (GME) Programs recognize that you need to concentrate on your own emotional and physical well-being to help you better serve your patients as well as lead a healthier, happier life.  These resources can help maintain your well-being by lowering your stress, identifying problem areas, avoiding burnout, and learning how to achieve a healthy work-life balance. 


We are committed to promoting overall wellness, including well-being and engagement at the University of Tennessee College of Medicine Chattanooga. Our efforts have resulted in the establishment and promotion of wellness-related activities for our campus including those at the program and institutional level, but we will strive to continue to make improvements.  As part of these efforts, we have established a Resident Advisory Board.  The Dean has also expanded the scope of our Assistant Dean for Medical Student Education to include Well-Being.  Please review information and resources via the left-hand menu links.
