National studies highlight a significant and increasing decline in physician health, well-being and enthusiasm for professional work - largely in response to increased healthcare system restraints and demands.
Most physicians deal with professional frustrations and challenges on their own, but research has shown distinct benefits when physicians:
Connect with peers to discuss shared experiences and insights
Explore cutting edge practices for cultivating well being
and join with colleagues to
Advocate for collaborative healthcare system changes
that enable physicians to provide high quality, compassionate patient care and
Engage in meaningful work
Please take this opportunity to share ideas with peers
and work closely with leading clinicians and researchers:
Dr. Colin West - Professor of Medicine, Medical Education, and Biostatistics, Mayo Clinic
Dr. Michael Krasner - Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine, University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry
Dr. Emiliana Simon-Thomas - Science Director of Greater Good Science Center, University of California, Berkeley
- Small group discussions, workshops and interactive presentations
- Ample opportunities for relaxed conversations with peers
- Time to explore movement, music and art
