The AAFP Physician Health First initiative is made possible by your generous contributions to the American Academy of Family Physicians Foundation

The AAFP Physician Health First initiative is devoted to improving the well-being and professional satisfaction of family physicians by addressing the causes of physician burnout, including the broken U.S. health care system, the organizations employing physicians, the practice environment, individual well-being, and a physician culture of self-sacrifice over self-care.
