The 8 PRACTICEs of Highly Successful Surgeons

A rewarding and fulfilling surgical practice is more than the next surgical procedure.  Athletes, performers, business owners and other professionals create a high level of success that is sustainable when they spend a comparable amount of time and energy learning, understanding and implementing practices that address areas beyond their specific trade or skill.  This program gives an overview of the 8 essential practices and demonstrates where our standard training methods in medical school, residency, fellowship and practice actually lead to burnout or less fulfilling practice survival skills.  This interactive session will also help each surgeon create action plans to create best practices for a sustainable lifestyle-friendly practice starting with energy and wellness, work-life balance, and complex problem solving (EMR, staff turnover, surgery scheduling, dealing with administrators, and so on.)
