Indiana University Health and School of Medicine are joining over 20 academically-affiliated healthcare organizations as an institutional member of the Healthcare Professional Well-Being Consortium (PWAC). This collective group is committed to assessing and sharing evidence-based, best practices that promote a culture of wellness, efficiency of practice, and well-being of healthcare professionals.


All attending physicians, clinical faculty, resident/fellow trainees, and advanced practice providers employed by IU Health and School of Medicine will be asked to participate in the #2022Wellbeing Survey starting November 29 until January 10, 2023. (A non-clinical version of the survey will be administered to basic science faculty and graduate students in Spring 2023).


By inviting feedback from over 7,000 healthcare providers across Indiana and the Academic Health Center, survey results will help generate robust benchmarks measuring professional fulfillment, burnout and drivers/mitigators of these outcomes.


Wellness champions in IU Health and School of Medicine have collectively vetted and customized this instrument so that reported benchmarks may be useful for leaders in academic departments, training programs, clinical specialties/subspecialities, and medical groups to address significant drivers and mitigators uniquely impacting their team.
