There is a growing body of literature on the need to improve well-being of healthcare professionals over the past five years. In the U.S., healthcare professionals suffer more burnout than other workers, with prevalence rates as high as 50% in physicians. Extensive research over the past decade illustrates that this issue could have a profound effect on the quality of patient care and there is concern that it might lead to early departure from the practice of medicine. 
 
This unique course will examine the importance of wellness and provide recommendations, tools, and resources that healthcare professionals could utilize to develop resiliency, work/life balance, and self-care. By using a skills lab approach, attendees are expected to learn and practice stress management methods, and emotional intelligence techniques with the opportunity to meet in small groups with fellow healthcare professionals to acquire and practice wellness skills.
