Join Medicine in Motion and our guest speakers for a panel on wellness and burnout for medical students, residents, and physicians. This panel will feature prominent physicians from around the US who will speak on ways we can optimize our health as medical professionals.
The panel will be split into two parts: first discussion questions will be asked from a curated list submitted ahead of time (see form below to submit your question) after which there will be an open question and answer session where attendees will be able to ask their own questions.
