The Humanologi Foundation, founded by spine surgeon Steven M. Reich, MD, is partnering with the American Medical Student Association on several initiatives to address physician burnout, reports.

Six things to know:

1. Dr. Reich practices at Affiliated Orthopaedic Specialists in North Brunswick and Manalapan, both in New Jersey. He and his wife established The Humanologi Foundation to promote empathy and compassion in healthcare, and Dr. Reich currently serves as the chair of the American Medical Student Association Advisory Council.

2. To ensure that more students are able to access education and training, Dr. Reich's alma mater, New York City-based Albert Einstein College of Medicine, will provide AMSA membership to all medical students as well as other educational resources, training and programming. 

3. The Humanologi Foundation will underwrite a significant portion of the fee associated with a self-awareness assessment, which is available to association members via AMSA.

4. Healthcare advisory firm J3Personica designed the assessment to allow medical students to gain insight into their own tendencies and behaviors in order to better manage stress and develop strategies for career success.

5. The Humanologi Foundation will also fund competitive scholarships for students to participate in the Save a Child's Heart program, which provides heart surgery for children from developing countries, and Shalva, a disability rehabilitation, research and inclusion program for individuals with developmental disabilities.
