A 4-day retreat-like workshop designed to improve the quality of care that clinicians provide while improving their own resilience and well-being.
It offers an experiential learning environment, with a focus on developing the capacity for self-awareness in stressful and demanding situations.
Designed for medical practitioners (physicians, NPs, PAs) and others involved in medical practice and education. No prior experience is required; however, experience with meditation or other contemplative practices is desirable.
Session themes include communication with patients/families, responding to suffering, difficult decisions, errors, professionalism, medical education, compassion, self-care, resilience, and burnout.
Course Directors: Ron Epstein, MD and Mick Krasner, MD
Details: Workshops begin Wednesday 6 p.m. and end Saturday 2:30 p.m. Lodging and meals are at the Retreat Center.
Accreditation: The University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
