Physician Wellness Center

MCMS has identified a compendium of community resources that physicians may find helpful in managing their day-to-day lives and improving their overall wellness. The goal is to provide a variety of modalities so that each physician can choose what is best for him or her.

Calm: Offers guided and unguided meditations that focus on relaxing in general and keeping steady in tough times. And, as an added perk, the app lets you personalize your experience.

Headspace: This app has the largest variety of meditations, with guided sessions for beginners and less-structured programming for pros. The interface has an appealingly cohesive design, and Headspace’s rich library of meditations is well organized and easy to navigate.

Healthy Minds: Healthy Minds Program is a free meditation app, so it won’t push you to subscribe. Unburdened by bells and whistles, it offers a well-structured, clear sequence of courses. It’s a great option for anyone who wants to see if meditation is right for them.
