In addition to complying with the GME Physician Well-Being & Impairment Policy, the Pediatric Radiology Program supports specific activities to encourage optimal resident and faculty member well-being. These include fellow mentorship by core faculty, the Annual Department of Radiology Resident and Faculty Retreat. Additionally, each fellow completes training modules on fatigue during New Fellow Orientation and the program has a process in place whereby a fellow with concerns about excessive fatigue or stress may receive personal counseling from the Program Director or receive referral to resources offered by the Colorado Physician Health Program (CPHP).
The program educates faculty members and fellows in the identification of the symptoms of burnout, depression, and substance abuse, in themselves and others, including methods to assist those who experience these conditions by way of Non-Interpretive Skills (NIS) lectures and Fellow Meetings.
If another resident, fellow, or faculty member may be displaying signs of burnout, depression, substance abuse, suicidal ideation, or potential for violence, this must be reported to the Program Director or to an Associate Program Director.
