Results of a Needs Assessment

This IRB approved research project is a medical center-based survey of faculty, physicians, and residents looking at our culture, professional health, balance, levels of work place stress, burnout, risk for depression and suicide and what educational initiatives are needed to address these issues. It also help us identify what works well at Vanderbilt and how we can capitalize on the positives and help influence change around areas of need. This survey will be launched in June of 2009. We hope to also use this survey at other academic medical centers across the country.
