Riley certified to lead physician well-being initiatives

Timothy Riley, MD, associate professor and associate vice chair for wellness in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at Penn State College of Medicine, completed a year-long certificate program from the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) called “Leading Physician Well-being (LPW).” He was one of 120 physicians selected from a national pool to participate in this program, which was created to provide leadership development, training in physician well-being advocacy and performance improvement project skill-building.

Riley developed a project called “Optimizing Advanced Practice Provider Time to Reduce Administrative Burden for Physicians” and presented this to his peers in a final project showcase in November 2022.

“Completing this program has positioned me to be a strong advocate for physician well‑being within our organization,” Riley said. “Thriving, engaged physicians are able to be fully available for their patients, both mentally and emotionally, which improves their care.”
