About ACOG National Wellness Week 2023

ACOG and CREOG partner each year to bring awareness to and celebrate the critical importance of physician wellness during Resident Wellness Week. From February 6–10, 2023, we encourage program leaders to lead efforts to improve their residents’ physical and emotional wellness and to consider how the environment and structures within medicine contribute to residents thriving or struggling. By creating wellness opportunities and making structural changes within our residency programs, we hope to not only improve resident wellness but also focus on the well-being of trainees and programs as a whole.

Our 2023 Wellness Week theme is Beyond Wellness Week: Ignite the Well-Being of Your Residency Program. We will provide ideas for activities focused on physical and mental health, suggestions for how to improve the well-being of the communities you serve, and guidance about how to have difficult conversations within your residency program to address systemic causes of burnout. Wellness is not a checkbox—let’s ignite our programs’ passion for educating the next generation of obstetrician–gynecologists in spaces that value their whole selves and foster well-being.
