Burnout can happen to any resident, in any residency program. The Resident Well-being and Burnout Prevention (RWBP) Project ECHO helps restore and protect residents through free, online, peer-based learning sessions.
Due to the number of applications we receive, we strongly encourage applicants to answer questions with as much detail as possible. Only those applications that are completed and have acknowledged the program's requirements will be reviewed and considered for participation.
