wellness programThe Academy of Medicine of Cincinnati recognizes the importance of physician wellness in today's health care environment.

Therefore the Academy of Medicine has joined forces with others in the local health care community (under the auspices of the Cincinnati Coalition for Physician Wellness) to address this issue and develop strategies to promote wellness through education and prevention.

In order to meet your needs, we are asking your input in designing educational and prevention strategies for the Academy's component of the community-wide wellness initiative.

We want to hear from you! It should only take a few minutes to complete the survey. Thank you in advance for helping to shape this important initiative.

Advertise with the AcademyThe Academy has begun work on the 63rd edition of the Medical Directory of Greater Cincinnati. The 2018-2019 edition is scheduled to be published/distributed in June 2018, and we invite you to advertise in the upcoming edition.

The publication features comprehensive individual listings for Academy members; group listings; cross references by specialty and location; and much more. Health care professionals will use the Medical Directory time and again over the two-year period allowing for maximum exposure for your practice, product, or service. Rates are very competitive and offer a cost-effective way to reach the regional health care community.
