Office of Well-Being

Empowering expertise, improving well-being, and advancing seamless healthcare

Our Vision:
All who investigate, work, and learn at Michigan Medicine can use and build their expertise to seamlessly advance healthcare as a team.

Welcome to the Office of Well-Being!

We aim to mitigate and prevent the daily work stressors in the healthcare environment to advance our vision of empowering expertise, improving well-being, and advancing seamless healthcare among our workforce.  See below for more information on our strategic areas of focus. 

Our Focus Areas:

Using analysis of healthcare workforce data and hearing directly from partners like you, we know what the biggest stressors are and where the stressors occur.  Therefore, we work primarily alongside leaders and partners in the following focus areas that have the greatest impact on our work and professional fulfillment at system-level:  


Streamline operations and reduce those ‘pebbles in the shoe’ to optimize how we spend our time and do more of the work that fulfills us. 


Cultivate a culture of shared purpose, trust, accountability, aligned values, and psychological safety where we can all learn and grow.  


Scale human-centered leadership development of the leaders and managers who impact our daily work.


Use quantitative data and qualitative feedback to identify and connect initiatives to what matters most to your well-being at work. 



Michigan Medicine unequivocally recognizes racism as a public health issue, and we should be standing out as leaders against inequality. We are committed to creating fundamental change that leads to a culture of anti-racism, and a medical school and health system that are leaders in equity, justice and inclusiveness for people of all colors.

Land Acknowledgement

Michigan Medicine resides on ancestral lands of the Anishinaabeg, which includes the Three Fires People of the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Bodewadami Nations, and Meskwahkiasahina (Fox), Peoria, and Wyandot Nations. University of Michigan’s original endowment was significantly funded through the sale of a land grant made by the Anishinaabeg so their children could be educated. With this acknowledgment, we seek to reaffirm the vital contributions of indigenous people in our institutional history and respect their contemporary and ancestral ties to the land.
