Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) December 19, 2006
Grapevine Discovery, Inc. the developers of a physician fulfillment program, recently launched an alumni program. In spite of achieving career and financial success, today's physicians are stressed and overworked, often losing sight of their career goals and personal ambitions. The resulting frustration, anger, restlessness, and exhaustion are known as physician burnout and adversely affect the quality and costs of patient care. Physicians have turned to the physician fulfillment program at Grapevine Discovery as a successful means to combat burnout.
Many Grapevine Discovery graduates want to continue this exciting pursuit with other alumni. The newly launched alumni program gives members the opportunity for continuing interaction with other professionals on the same journey. Alumni have the option to participate in three dinners each year that provide roundtable sharing and personal, one-on-one interaction. Additionally, the alumni website provides for member dialogues, access to the Grapevine online lifetime planning tools, and the alumni curriculum of follow-on concepts related to the original Grapevine Process®.
"We have listened to the needs of our graduates and they have expressed a real desire to build on what they have learned," said Howard Silverman, co-founder of Grapevine Discovery. "We put together the alumni program to address the continuing needs of busy physicians faced with highly stressed occupations. By sharing challenges and experiences, there is increased opportunity for making changes that expand into fulfillment."
The co-founders of the program are Howard Silverman, MD MS, and Fred Corbus. Dr. Silverman is a Clinical Professor of Family and Community Medicine at the University of Arizona College of Medicine and a Clinical Professor of Biomedical Informatics at Arizona State University.
