Five Ideas for Abstract Submission at the PHW Exchange Poster Session


Here’s yet one more opportunity for you to help improve physician health and wellness in Texas.

The Texas Medical Association Physician Health and Wellness Exchange in March will feature a poster session highlighting the TMA Health and Wellness initiative in academic medicine. 

The poster session is an opportunity for medical students, residents, and academic medicine faculty members to collaborate on ideas that will help identify best practices for wellness and resilience in academic medical centers.

Awards will be given to the three best posters, and the award winners will have an opportunity to give their presentations.

Who’s eligible? All institutional academic administration leaders and staff members. All persons holding a current academic appointment (student, post-doc, resident, fellow or faculty). The deadline to apply is Feb. 8.

Need more inspiration? 


Abstract submissions should fit with theme of the Think Tank Survey discussion. Examples of submissions should include but are not limited to: 

  • Academic Medical Center Wellness Programs: Effective vs. Ineffective (e.g., Employee Assistance Programs);
  • Solutions to repercussions/stigma related to various unhealthy behaviors among the trainee population, faculty, and/or institutional leaders;
  • Strategies for effective collaborations that encourage health-seeking behaviors in trainee population, faculty, and/or leaders;
  • Models of effective work-life integration for staff, faculty and leaders; and
  • Innovative Approaches to Wellness — Student and Trainee Perspectives (a category for students and trainees specifically). 


Register now for the Physician Health and Wellness Exchange, Saturday, March 2, 2019, at Baylor College of Medicine, Cullen Auditorium.

The “Identifying Best Practices for Wellness and Resilience in Academic Medical Centers” discussion at the exchange will be guided by this survey.
