a resilience & wellness resource for physicians
Welcome to our new website IFMC BNB: Balance not Burnout! 

This is a website designed with you in mind, specifically focused on physician wellness/burnout. We need to take care of ourselves first in order to provide the most compassionate, top quality care for our patients.

Now, resources are just a click away…….PLEASE, check out what we have to offer you. Since this is a new initiative, let us know what is working well,  what things we can improve, and what may be missing.
