Path to Physician Wellness Study
What does it mean to be healthy? Is burnout a real thing? Are physicians actually health experts – If so, why are so many of us not very healthy
The University of Louisville Department of Emergency Medicine is looking for physicians who have made the transition from poor health to good health. This could mean overcoming burnout, overhauling physical health, or any other interpretation of going from unhealthy to healthy. We would like to look for patterns and provide this evidence to all healthcare professionals as a potential model for improving health. This will lay groundwork for future interventional studies. 
If interested in participating, see the study overview information below. 
Sign up for an interview day/time on the Doodle Poll (leave your email address and you will be contacted to schedule an interview)
Contact Martin Huecker on his personal cellphone (502-396-6137) or email ( if you want more information.
Please consider participating and thank you for your valuable time!
-Martin Huecker, MD & Jacob Shreffler, PhD
The Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Louisville is conducting a study to develop an instrument to measure physician flow at work. Flow is the state in which an individual is so absorbed in what they are doing that it makes them feel they are one with the activity. Individuals who experience this flow state, typically are enjoying what they are doing and continuously strive for this peak experience.
We ask that you take 5-10 minutes to complete the survey. (If you are a UofL faculty member, you may have already received this email and you should not participate twice.)
This study was approved by the University of Louisville Institutional Review Board (# 21.0114).
If you have any questions, please contact Alyssa Thomas, Emergency Medicine Research Coordinator, at
