Objective: Clinician burnout is a public health crisis that demands immediate attention and intervention. This article reviews the organizational strategies of two established well-being programs shown to reduce clinician burnout and increase professional engagement.

Method: A search of PubMed, Cochrane Review, and Google Scholar databases revealed two articles outlining Mayo Clinic and Stanford Medicine’s clinician well-being programs. Fifteen documents supplied background information and supporting evidence.

Results: Little research has been done on active evidence-based well-being programs or cost analyses for the start and support of a viable well-being program.

Conclusion: Despite increasing awareness of the devastating consequences of clinician burnout, most health care systems lack a robust well-being program. Further research is necessary to determine startup and maintenance costs, and the unique applications of burnout interventions in various health care settings.
