Mindful Practice: Facilitator Training - ONLINE

Prior attendance at a Mindful Practice® workshop is required.

Using state-of-the-art online technology, we have created a live, online, Facilitator Training workshop that will be dynamic and interactive and designed to enable clinicians and medical educators deepen their skills in mindful practice and their ability to teach and develop programs in mindful practice at their home institutions in the same way as our in-person workshops. Dates, content and activities are the same as the in-person workshops. Click here to find out more and apply* for the Facilitator Training.

Chapin

 A 5-day, retreat-like workshop designed to enable clinicians and medical educators deepen their skills in mindful practice and their ability to teach and develop programs in mindful practice at their home institutions. Mindful practice promotes effective, efficient and compassionate care while also improving clinicians' own resilience and well-being by building clinicians' attentiveness, situational awareness, self-awareness, teamwork, and self-monitoring in stressful and demanding clinical situations. The workshop helps participants define and realize their learning goals in an experiential learning environment. 

Designed for medical practitioners (physicians, NPs, PAs) and others involved in medical practice and medical education, the program combines didactic presentations and training in conducting experiential exercises using narratives, appreciative inquiry, and contemplative practices such as mindfulness meditation.

Session themes address attention, suffering, teamwork, difficult conversations with patients/families, uncertainty in medicine, medical education, grief and loss, resilience and compassion.

The workshop will offer hands-on experience in teaching and facilitation.  It is designed for those who wish to advance their teaching skills and to support efforts at implementing Mindful Practice® curricula in their own settings.

Course is by application only and upon acceptance you will be directed to a registration website.

Course Directors: Ron Epstein, MD and Mick Krasner, MD

Details:  Session schedules have been adjusted to accommodate European time zones.  Approximate time for all sessions will be between 9 am Eastern to 5 pm Eastern time.   

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.
