The WellnessEdge™ is a ten module online wellness and burnout prevention program featuring SurgeonMasters founder Jeff Smith and guest contributors. Each module highlights a different wellness topic, and teaches key burnout prevention principles. All module lessons include habit-building exercises, and participants create action plans making adoption of new habits simpler.

After completing the WellnessEdge™, participants will:

  • Recognize negative triggers in our healthcare system that spark burnout and deplete wellness.

  • Use tools to mitigate the effects of negative triggers that impact health and well-being.

  • Assess and apply the best strategy to manage issues causing burnout.

  • Develop actions plans that create sustainable wellness habits.

  • Build habits that improve mental well-being and cool symptoms of burnout.

Upgrade to the Silver, Gold or Platinum program to truly experience the WellnessEdge™ benefit. In advanced program levels, participants see greater results sooner with hours of one-on-one coaching. You can learn more about SurgeonMasters Coaching here.

In essence Jeff showed me some of the skills that I had all along but wasn’t putting to good use; most doctors are smart and motivated but fall short of personal and professional goals due to stress or being unaware of some tools that are at hand, but not in mind.

There is no doubt the practice of medicine has changed considerably in just a few short years, and the industry is still learning to manage it. There is one truth that has remained constant - happy and healthy surgeons correlate with a better patient experience and improved outcomes.

As electronic medical records, expense cutting, decreasing reimbursements, new performance measures, and a host of other issues have been introduced, navigating a surgical career now can feel more like surviving an unrelenting system, and less about providing the best patient care. Until recently, the stigma of burnout was that only the weak experienced symptoms. In reality, most surgeons feel the effects of burnout at some point in their careers. According to the Medscape National Physician Burnout & Depression Report 2018, more than 40% of physicians reported burnout¹.

Unchecked, burnout has serious consequences for surgeons and hospitals alike, including:

  • Poor Patient Satisfaction

  • Medical Errors

  • Alcohol and Substance Abuse

  • Early Retirement

  • Decreased Productivity and Lost Revenue

  • Depression and Suicide

Instead of spending 20% of my time and energy stressing about difficulties of my nascent practice, I’m spending that energy solving problems and forgiving the setbacks that naturally arise.
