Abstract

This article is from the “To The Point” series prepared by the Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics Undergraduate Medical Education Committee. The purpose of this review was to provide an overview of the importance of well-being in medical education. A literature search was performed by a Reference Librarian who used Ovid/MEDLINE to identify scholarly articles published in English on learner well-being, using the search terms “burnout,” “resilience,” “wellness,” and “physicians” between 1946 and January 11, 2019. The accreditation expectations and standards, available assessment tools for learner well-being, existing programs to teach well-being, and some key elements for curriculum development are presented. This is a resource for medical educators, learners, and practicing clinicians from any field of medicine.
