Provider Well-Being & Leadership Development
UnityPoint Clinic recognizes the critical importance of supporting the well-being of our physicians and advanced practitioners. We believe well-being goes beyond the absence of burnout. It includes focusing on work-life integration, professional fulfillment and accomplishment, social connection, and resiliency. Our goal is to provide resources to support and promote provider well-being, manage and prevent burnout, and connect providers to the joy of practicing medicine. UnityPoint Clinic also believes that promoting and developing effective provider leaders is critical to provider engagement and satisfaction. We value the important contributions of physicians and advanced practitioners in the leadership of our organization and are committed to providing continued opportunities for leadership development. We believe exceptional provider experiences at UnityPoint Clinic create exceptional patient experiences.
We have created this page as a landing point for all well-being and leadership development resources we offer to UnityPoint Clinic providers. We are constantly looking for ways to promote and support our providers and welcome any ideas you may have. Please reach out to Rachel Dahlen, Director of Provider Development at Rachel.Dahlen@unitypoint.org with comments or suggestions.
The practice of medicine is a calling; one that is simultaneously immensely rewarding and challenging. You show up every day to care for people, yet don't take the time you need to care for yourself. UnityPoint Clinic recognizes that helping providers balance their professional and personal demands is important. UnityPoint Clinic also recognizes that the organizational environment and the "system" in which you work can either support or harm your well-being.
We offer a wide variety of resources to help you in your daily work and in your life. Our goal is to fully support you as a professional and ensure you have an exceptional experience practicing with UnityPoint.
Provider Leadership Development
Physicians and Advanced Practitioners experience various transitions and development needs throughout their careers. At UnityPoint Health, our goal is to provide excellent support and development opportunities for our providers. This starts during the onboarding and orientation experience, through their years of practice to retirement.
Career coaching, mentoring and leadership development are the cornerstones of our professional development programs. Our hallmark program, the UnityPoint Health Physician Leadership Academy provides formal training to those who are interested in pursuing additional leadership education through a blend of in-person and virtual training.
