Abstract

Physicians who are well can best serve their patients. Meaningful work, strong relationships with patients, positive team structures, and social connection at work are important factors for physician well-being. Although evidence to support some of the recommendations in this charter is still emerging, medical organizations, regulatory groups, and individual physicians share a responsibility to support these needs. The Charter on Physician Well-being is intended to inspire collaborative efforts among individuals, organizations, health systems, and the profession of medicine to honor the collective commitment of physicians to patients and to each other.
