Abstract

The epidemic of clinician burnout and the COVID-19 pandemic are making each other worse. The effects of the current situation, unless leaders step up, will devastate caregivers and the patients they serve. We assert that professional fulfillment of clinicians is the best way to measure success and failure. We propose a model of holistic wellness—involving not just self-care but also health in relationships, teams, organizations, and communities. This paper proposes a new model of leadership to assess the level of wellness across these dimensions, and, with respect and humility, how to lead one’s self and others to higher levels of professional fulfillment, which will benefit physicians, teams, organizations, and the patients they serve.
