Between pandemics, the electronic medical record, and the emphasis on the bottom line, the pressures of a career in medicine have never been higher. We can get caught in worry, harsh self-judgment, and feeling like an imposter; the rapid pace of our minds contributes to the high rates of physician burnout seen today. In this full day course, you’ll acquire practical strategies to quiet your mind and gain mastery over worries and self-doubt. You’ll learn about the neuroscience behind mindfulness and meditation, and practice with a variety of readily accessible tools that will help you attain calm, clarity, and the balance you need to build resilience and avoid physician burnout.
