Physician Wellness

Be Well Physicians

Be Well Physicians is a new program from Butte-Glenn Medical Society to provide social and individual wellness support for physicians. Physicians are often focused on taking care of others. The demands on physicians have increased. Stress and burnout are being reported at higher levels than ever before. We can help.

Enjoy the Physician Community

Join colleagues, reconnect with the physician community and enjoy complimentary small bites and a drinks for all physicians, regardless of membership in BGMS/CMA! Meet new physicians to the community and catch up with colleagues.

The following psychologists are local and are able to schedule physicians within 24 to 48 hours of your contact with them (for most of the year). Butte-Glenn Medical Society is grateful to partner with the California Psychologists Association and their local chapter.

Physician Wellness Coach

Steven Seay Leadership Coach:

Steven will travel to the physician. Steven is available for in-person, phone or video consultations. He joined Butte-Glenn Medical Society on November 12, 2019 at Unwined in Chico to discuss physician wellness a year after the fire. He is also a resilience consultant with neighboring county medical society's Joy of Medicine program.

Physician Wellness Survey

The wellness survey launched in partnership with Well Physicians California in 2019 with a pilot in San Diego. As Well Physicians California expands in 2020, we are hopeful they will conduct a pilot survey in our area.
