Today’s Minute

March 8, 2024

Team Upstate:

We are excited to announce that we have partnered with the American Medical Association (AMA) to support us with improving practitioner well-being. The AMA is a key leader in this work and offers expertise and insights from a national perspective so that we can best identify levers for change.

With the guidance of the AMA, we are developing an assessment to measure your state of wellbeing and identify systems issues which can be modified to improve your professional satisfaction. We will share the data with you and use it to implement informed solutions.

The survey will be launched in April 2024 and is anonymous. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey.

We greatly appreciate your participation!

Thanks for reading,
