Clinician Wellness - Resources and Links

Thriving, healthy medical professionals are those best suited to provide high quality patient care. In that spirit, NCMB encourages any licensee who is experiencing health problems – including burnout, mental health or substance use disorders or physical or cognitive challenges – to seek appropriate care and professional support. It is NCMB’s position that licensees should take their own health and wellbeing as seriously as they do the health and wellbeing of their patients.
