Build a Better Core (BBC): Executive Function Skills for Physicians with ADHD

PHP is partnering with Dr. Elisabeth Baerg Hall to offer an executive function skills group exclusively for physicians with ADHD.

The Build a Better Core Program offers physicians a safe space to discuss their challenges with ADHD and discover their ADHD strengths. Sessions optimize physician wellbeing through education, skills development, and shared experiences with colleagues.

Past participants note that the collegial environment of shared experiences and practical skills helped them regain their energy for practice and rebuild their personal relationships.
