鶹ýStatements

Statement on Surgeon Well-Being

The 鶹ýrecognizes the need to foster well-being, resilience, and work-life integration for all surgeons, regardless of their career stage. Fostering the growth of both the surgical expertise and the person as a whole is paramount.

Statement in Support of the FSMB Policy on Physician Illness and Impairment

In light of the projected shortage of surgeons by 2030, well-being implications of the COVID-19 pandemic, and increasing negative drivers and factors affecting surgeon well-being, the 鶹ýadvocates for pathways for physicians who ask for help before serious events and consequences occur, or physicians who are receptive to help when approached by leadership, peers, colleagues, family, friends, and other support systems.
