ChapinA 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.
