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 accessible tools that will help you attain calm, clarity, and the balance you need to build resilience and avoid physician burnout. This program includes follow-up sessions and resources to enforce and reflect on learning and utilization of strategies and practices.
