Collaborative Physician Well-Being Initiatives


Physician Wellness CME Program -  Idaho Osteopathic Physicians Association (IOPA): 

As Director of Physician Wellness and Chair of Continuing Medical Education for the Idaho Osteopathic Physicians Association, I developed an innovative, comprehensive physician wellness curriculum, with interactive workshops and physician conferences.  With support from IOPA’s Executive Board, this program was implemented in Idaho.


Physician Vitality Initiative - Ada County Medical Society (ACMS)

I serve as one of the founding members of the ACMS Physician Wellness Committee. Our committee developed The Physician Vitality Initiative - a progressive program that offers a confidential counseling service as well as a myriad of resources to physicians.

An ACMS Physician Vitality Dinner Lecture Series will be offered in 2018.  ACMS and IOPA are co-sponsoring Dr. Colin West's visit for the Culture of Wellness lecture in the dinner series.  


Physician Retreats and Professional Coaching -  Wellness for Doctors

I contribute as a co-teacher for physician wellness retreats and professional coach for physicians.  I collaborate with Dr. Michael Amster, Founder of Wellness for Doctors, on physician wellness initiatives.
