Since its inception in 2014, Finding Inspiration and Resilience in Medicine (FIRM) Conference has made preventing and overcoming burnout its highest priority.
As we continue to challenge the present reality of burnout, we are calling for a better, brighter future in health professions. We hope to help medical practitioners stop merely surviving and start thriving. It is time to stop burning out and begin burning bright. We invite you to burn brightly with us at this year’s conference!
We can promise great speakers, cool swag, food and a collective interest in improving the state of health care education and work to better support you and your colleagues.
