Welcome to your new resource for stopping the scourge of moral injury, burnout, and addiction.
MSDC joins the American Medical Association (AMA) and the entire House of Medicine in recognizing the epidemic of burnout in healthcare professionals. In particular, MSDC remains dedicated to providing resources and support to District physicians in their struggle against burnout. For decades, MSDC has provided support and advocacy for those physicians battling addiction. MSDC has officially launched The Healthy Physician Foundation to advance physician wellness.
What is the Healthy Physician Foundation?
The Healthy Physician Foundation is an affiliated 501(c)3 charitable organization dedicated to addressing and preventing moral injury in the physician population, with a specific focus in the DC area. This organization exists to provide programs, resources, and community to a profession overwhelmed and overburdened by stress.
What kind of resources does the Healthy Physician Foundation provide?
The Foundation focuses on two areas. The first area is support for behavioral and addiction illness through our long-standing Physician Health Program. The second area is our rapidly growing Wellbeing Program, which offers resources to prevent and address moral injury in the physician community.
What is the MSDC Wellbeing Program?
The MSDC Wellbeing Program serves the physician community by offering resources and programs that prevent and address burnout and moral injury. Existing resources include our Healthy Physician App, free consultations with vetted wellness professionals, a line-up of community-building programs, and articles on the latest wellbeing information.
Is this the same as the Medical Society and Alliance Foundation (MSAF)?
