Mind Body Medicine

In order to not only acknowledge the reality of burnout which effects all medical professionals, but to provide skills to mitigate and prevent it, our ambulatory education includes a longitudinal mind-body-medicine curriculum. During the +2 clinic block, our residents learn about and participate in mind-body techniques such as mindfulness meditation, guided imagery, and yoga. Residents are clustered into small groups of the same post-graduate year with a core faculty member who leads the didactic. Through this curriculum, residents are given the opportunity to share and reflect on the more meaningful and more difficult parts of being a resident.
