Representing Fellows in Evidence-Based Wellness Interventions With Andrew Hearn, MD, MSCI

At the recent American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting in Chicago, Dr. Andrew Hearn, Academic Chief Resident in the Internal Medicine Residency Program at St. Francis-Emory Healthcare, sat down to discuss his poster entitled “Demographic trends and outcome measures found in randomized controlled trials of wellness interventions among medical trainees: a systematic review.” In this interview, he further delves into:

  • The gaps in wellness interventions in the form of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) for medical education trainees
  • His team’s study investigating RCTs with quantifiable measures in mental health and wellness
  • The disparities in interventions and demographics including fellows
  • Next steps for future research incorporating standardized outcome measures into wellness interventions targeting fellows and figuring out “what works?”

Dr. Hearn is currently interested in a qualitative investigation into factors contributing to burnout and gaps in wellness interventions for hematology/oncology fellows. If you are interested in being interviewed by Dr. Hearn about your experiences, email him at
