Health, wellness and professional behavior are all interrelated. According to the American Association of Medical Colleges:

Medical school and residency training represent periods of intense study and training and can be very stressful life periods. There is a large literature on impaired physicians, addiction and substance abuse as unhealthy coping mechanisms. Identifying stressful situations early in one’s career, as a medical student or before, and providing models for healthy coping has the potential to reduce the likelihood that a physician will make poor choices later in life.
