Physician Burnout and Stress Program to be Profiled on


Scottsdale, Ariz. (July 9, 2007) – All this week on there will be a feature profile discussing the Grapevine Discovery Physician program. As stated in that profile, the central focus of Grapevine’s program is to help overworked physicians develop a new insight about their personal goals through examining six areas of life: career, family, health, finances, leisure/social, and meaning/spirituality. By the conclusion of the program, participants will have created their own personal, actionable plan discussing how they will improve the balance in their lives.

Howard D. Silverman, MD., MS., co-founder of Grapevine Discovery gives an example of a typical story: “An overworked family practitioner in his late 30s was a member of countless committees and involved with too many residency programs. Through our program he was surprised to discover that he desired to compete in triathalons and focus on having a happy family. Once he realized his priorities, he quit the committees, started training and getting home on time. After completing our program his whole life just seemed to turn around and today the entire family is happy.”
