National Doctors' Day was March 30. Read a note from Dr. Roper to all of UNC Health Care's talented physicians.
As UNC Health Care and the UNC School of Medicine continue to promote physician wellness, a seminar on Mindfulness (with lunch provided) is being offered at noon in the Old Clinic Auditorium. Chair massages are also being offered throughout the day in the lobby of the Neurosciences Hospital. Samantha Meltzer-Brody, MD, MPH, says these events should be considered a kick off for other forthcoming efforts to promote wellness.
Several UNC School of Medicine specialties ranked near the top in the magazine’s annual rankings.
Only five percent of doctors in America earn this prestigious honor, decided by impartial peer review.
Each year, UNC Health Care administers the CMS-approved Clinician and Group Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CG-CAHPS) survey to solicit feedback from patients. One question on that survey asks patients if they would recommend their provider's office to friends and family. One hundred and thirty three of our providers had more than 94 percent of their patients respond “Yes, definitely!” to that question, which places them in the top quartile nationally.
Following this special Doctors' Day edition, Vital Signs will run again tomorrow with research news, award announcements and more.
