The Minnesota Medical Association (MMA) Practice Well Collaboratory is an innovative and cooperative thought-laboratory designed to share, promote, and explore innovative strategies and best practices to support physician health and well-being and to combat physician burnout.

The MMA invites individual practitioners, healthcare leaders, well-being champions, medical educators, scholars, and artists from diverse disciplines to submit proposals related to individual and systems approaches to promote physician health and well-being. We welcome interdisciplinary and interprofessional approaches to these topics. 

Proposals may be selected to be included as a resource on the Collaboratory site, or as presentations at future events. 

Passionate collaborators with diverse backgrounds and ideas will be vital to the success of this project.

About the Practice Well Collaboratory

Physicians, wellness leaders and champions, and others utilize the Collaboratory to:

  • Find and share local and national resources 
  • Promote practical strategies to build personal resilience and practice self-care
  • Share system-level approaches for designing workplaces that foster well-being and respect professionalism 
  • Advocate for change in structures and policies that impede the patient-physician relationship and drive burnout
  • Build community and support one another

In addition to the online resources, the Collaboratory includes an annual conference (the Reclaim the Joy of Medicine: Bounce Back Clinician Resilience Conference) and will be expanded to include additional events and features.
