Faculty Wellness

How it all started

During the summer of 2017, the Department Head and Administrative Director undertook a roadshow in preparation for the new strategic plan to complete a S.W.O.T analysis (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats) in person with various groups of OBGYN department members. One topic that came up frequently was burnout. As a result, the idea of a Wellness Program for the department was initiated, where the department’s objective is to understand how ‘well’ faculy truly are, and how to provide them with tools to assist them with the daily professional tasks they are faced with.

The areas that we would like to understand further with regard to your needs are :

  1. Wellness
  2. Peer mentoring
  3. Skills development

The Faculty Wellness Survey is now closed. Stay tuned for the results!

In order to gain more insight around these topics, we will be conducting an online Wellness Survey during the month of June 2018. In addition, focus groups about Wellness will be conducted with each OBGYN division. These initiatives are currently taking place for physicians a part of the UBC department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology.
