Gaurava Agarwal, MD, discusses the Scholars of Wellness

STEPS Forward webinar series

On Jan. 27, 2021, the AMA held a webinar in the AMA STEPS Forward™ series: "The Scholars of Wellness: A faculty development program to create wellness champions."

The National Academy of Medicine's Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-being and Resilience recommends a systems approach to professional well-being. However, there are challenges to implementing this approach including the need for a coalition of trained individuals who can drive change. 

An award-winning faculty development initiative called the Scholars of Wellness is presented in this webinar. Learn how the initiative can be adopted by organizations to help create a critical mass of faculty wellness champions that can advance well-being at the organizational level.
