Mindfulness and Compassion During COVID and Beyond: Employing Tools to Remain Calm and Productive

October 2, 2021
Virtual Live Event
Space is limited.  Register early.
Between pandemics, the EMR, and the emphasis on the bottom line, the pressures of a career in medicine have never been higher. Yet physicians learn little about how to work with the instrument used in all waking hours--the mind. We can get caught in worry, harsh self-judgment, and feeling like an imposter and the busyness of our minds contributes to the high rates of physician burnout we’re seeing.   

In this ½-day course, you’ll gain practical strategies to quiet your mind, and gain mastery over worries and self-doubt. You’ll learn about the neuroscience underpinning of mindfulness and meditation practice. You’ll get practice with a variety of readily accessible mindfulness tools that will help you attain calm, clarity, and the balance you need to build resilience and avoid physician burnout. This half day program will be followed up with 2 virtual meetings to enforce and reflect on learning and utilization of strategies and practices.
