University of Pennsylvania invites you to participate in the Faculty Well-Being Index. This validated tool is an opportunity to help you better understand your overall well-being and areas of risk compared to physicians across the nation, as well as provide access to local and national resources. The tool is 100% anonymous - your information and score is private and your individual score will not be shared with University of Pennsylvania, or anyone for that matter.
Quick Facts About the Index
- We have over 600 active users of the tool.
- You can set up your preferences to receive a reminder to self-assess at intervals you specify to track you well-being over time.
- We have recently expanded the tool to residents and medical students to enable self-assessment for those groups with access to resources as well.
The Impact of the Faculty Well-Being Index
Using rigorous development and a multi-step validation process, the Well-Being Index was invented by physicians at the Mayo Clinic to evaluate multiple dimensions of distress. Since, they have been validated by various publications and used by more than 35,000 medical professionals.
Track Your Well-Being Over Time
The Faculty Well-Being Index tracks your results over time. This allows you to correlate changes in well-being results to life and practice events. Based upon these results, the tool provides resources when they're needed the most.
Compare Your Scores to Physicians Nationally
The most accurate way to assess your well-being is to compare your results to colleagues on a national level. This allows you to see in which areas you exceed and which areas you're at higher risk compared to your peers.
Access Free Resources
After completing the Well-Being Index, you will have access to both national and local resources across multiple categories and topics.
