The Role of the CMA in Physician Health and Wellness

The CMA strategy is to champion physician health and wellness across the physician lifecycle through leadership and advocacy; and through a lens of shared responsibility — from 'individual' to 'system' —with particular emphasis on system-level initiatives.
