Work/Life Balance
The University of Michigan is a great place to work. We also value balance. You can find an abundance of information in our Work/Life Balance section.

We also acknowledge that burnout and fatigue are a reality in academic medicine and healthcare. The Office of Counseling and Workplace Resilience serves the mental and emotional health needs of Michigan Medicine faculty and staff. They provide free-of-charge and confidential counseling, consultation, coaching and stress debriefing services to help faculty and staff develop strength and resilience in their personal and professional lives. They also offer a number of programs designed to help individuals and departments reduce burnout, compassion fatigue, and to foster resilience.
