Although the practice of medicine can be incredibly meaningful and personally fulfilling, it is also demanding and stressful. By advancing initiatives that enhance efficiency, professional satisfaction and the delivery of care, UCI Radiation Oncology is always striving to help physicians navigate and succeed in a continually evolving health care environment. The Department places a high priority on work-life balance, and wellness is at the heart of everything we do. In addition to ongoing reflection thought leadership, research and advocacy, we look for ways to champion physician wellness through social activities (trivia nights, group hikes, wine-tasting, bowling, or sporting events) and the integration of talks on burnout and well-being into the didactic curriculum. An annual wellness retreat is also being planned.
