RECHARGE from burnout: Image


A recent participant of the Recharge course had this to say:

"I just finished this course and can highly recommend it!!! The multiple sessions really helped me with personal accountability, versus a session here and there. Each week was a very different topic and they gave me the words, tools, insight and power to make the big and small changes in my life that really needed to be made. I was burned out, like so many, and finally feel like I can breathe again. Still a ways to go, but at least I feel I am on the path now." (-Canadian physician)

What participants liked the most:     

"The practical nature of the program was one of the things I liked best and how to manage the complex emotional aspect to implementing these practical changes."

"How to schedule effectively, working on boundaries, how to say 'no', making healthy habits, the emphasis on mindfulness and meditation was really helpful."

Feedback on the Recharge workbook & action plans:

"Loved having these in advance of the session to provide a context for the presentation and more in-depth info... Also something I will go back to when I am needing a 'refresher' "

To Prevent or Overcome Burnout

8-Session Course

Now Available On-Demand!

Due to the increased demand for help with burnout I have decided to make my 8-week online series available in an on-demand version. The complete series of Video Recordings, Session Notes, and Action Plans, can be accessed on your own time. I'm so happy to be able to offer this to those of you who wished to take the live series but couldn't fit it into your schedule. I hope you will go through the material thoughtfully and allow time for personal reflection and growth.

The Recharge on-demand series allows you to:

  • Follow a step-by-step plan to overcome & prevent burnout

  • Watch video recordings & slideshows by Dr. Marcia Kostenuik

  • Read workbook including full session notes 

  • Reflect & make changes as you complete the written action plan

  • Emerge from the Recharge program with a fresh perspective

If you would like additional private coaching this can be arranged (additional fee)

The positive feedback from participants who have completed the Recharge program has exceeded my expectations. If you are not satisfied with the program, email me and I will refund you the full fee. 


I have seen too many physicians and patients injured by the effects of burnout. In the past 21 years, as an emergency room physician, family physician, and medical psychotherapist, I have lost close friends on both sides of this equation. Cynicism, detachment, and exhaustion lead to errors. Sadly, burnout and errors can push physicians to the brink. Most physicians with burnout deny even serious symptoms due to their strong sense of duty and obligation. Guilt and moral distress lead some doctors to push past safe limits until it's too late. Getting through the denial of even severe symptoms of burnout can be difficult. Do a self-test here.

My goal is to help those suffering from burnout before serious adverse events occur. Too many doctors wait until their health has suffered severely. In some cases, they reach out to me only after a cardiac event or other stress-related illness finally hits. In other cases, their relationships have been injured, or a medical error or complaint has caused them intense stress or forced them to leave their job permanently. I don't want another doctor to suffer unnecessarily from the personal fallout that accompanies burnout. Help is available. 

This series is suitable for physicians, nurses, health care professionals, psychotherapists, executives, managers, workers, caregivers, parents, and anyone concerned about burnout.

Students report finding her strategies helpful in their personal and professional and appreciate the practical approaches that empower them to improve their relationships and achieve personal growth. 


What if I can't make it to all the sessions?

That is not a problem, registrants will receive recordings of each session and do not need to attend sessions live. At any live attended sessions, you will also have the opportunity to ask questions on any material you might have missed. 

What if I am burned out from parenting?

The Recharge program strategies are helpful for those feeling exhausted and depleted from work, parenting, or caregiving. A wide variety of examples from work life and relationships, including parenting and partner relationships, will be given throughout the series. Examples from the lives of physicians & physician parents will be given. Dr. Kostenuik also runs a Mindful Parenting Course (email to enquire about upcoming dates).

Is this series only for physicians?  

In this time of diversity and inclusion, I am motivated to offer this series to all those who are interested and could benefit. Although I work closely with physicians and offer programs tailored to them, this series is open to non-physicians as well. (Feel free to email if you have questions about your suitability for the program.)

What if I can't attend any of the live sessions?
