As a GIM Division Chief or Leader have you ever faced one or more of the following?

  • Top Talent Retention
  • Decreased Productivity
  • Increased Recruitment Costs
  • Decreased Quality of Care

If YES, consider participating in the Work Life and Wellness Program

ACLGIM understands that if your answer was 'Yes' to one or more of the above that the recent healthcare changes and ever increasing demand, specifically for general internal medicine (GIM) physicians, is most likely the culprit.

The Work Life and Wellness Program was created to address the affects of these demands and provide GIM Division Chiefs and Leaders a comprehensive evaluation of faculty, which measures work life quality and satisfaction.

ACLGIM has partnered with Mark Linzer, Division Director in GIM at Hennepin County Medical Center, and well known expert in the study of work life balance to provide the comprehensive Work Life and Wellness Program evaluation.

The value of the Work Life and Wellness program to GIM organizations completely outweighs the high costs of turnover, increased recruiting costs, and decreased quality of care.
