One rarely knows where to begin the search for meaning,

though by necessity, we can only start where we are…

It somehow has to do with sticking together as we try to make sense of chaos,

and that seems a way to begin.

According to a study at Mayo Clinic published in JAMA, physicians who participated in facilitated physician discussion groups reported increased empowerment and engagement at work - and the number of participants strongly agreeing that their work was meaningful increased.

In response to studies highlighting the value of ongoing physician discussion groups, we have organized a Rediscovering Meaning In Our Work physician discussion group in Boise.

Each month, we explore a topic relevant to physicians. Our discussions are focused on physician well-being and meaningful work.

We meet at the Lemon Tree cafe in Boise after hours - so we have the place to ourselves. Please join us for relaxed conversations with peers and delicious food.  You are welcome to participate whenever it is convenient.

Please check our calendar for dates, times and location information. We usually meet the 2nd Sunday of the month at 3:30pm. Please come at 3:15 (or call in your order) if you would like to order food. For the months of November and December, ACMS will be treating us to our dinners!

If you would like to join us or receive an email reminder for our meetings, please contact Deb Roman.
