Worldwide Coaching for Physicians


The World Medical Association has taken a strong position regarding physician well being and burnout. In 2015 the 66th WMA General Assembly issued a Statement on Physicians Well-Being. This called on National Medical Associations to recognize and actively address  that physicians have the "right to working conditions that help limit the risk of burnout and empower them to care for their personal health by balancing their professional medical commitments and their private lives …" The WMA describes physician well-being as the "optimization of all factors affecting biological, psychological and social health and preventing or treating …diseases experienced by physicians including mental illness, disabilities and injuries resulting from work hazards, occupational stress and burnout."
