Mindful Practice

Balanced stones

Mindful practice refers to qualities exhibited by exemplary clinicians that transcend clinical specialty and clinical experience.  These qualities include the ability to be present, attentive, and curious, and to adopt a "beginner's mind" with the goal of achieving greater awareness and insight into one's own work.

Mindful Practice® programs offer a means to:

  • Enhance the self-awareness, wellness, and resilience of health professionals
  • Improve their relationships with patients and colleagues
  • Advance the quality of medical care they provide
