Mindful Medicine: Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction for Physicians

Practice Medicine Mindfully. We have been invited to teach an 8 session Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction for Physicians course at the UOttawa Faculty of Medicine with the final sessions every Monday 5-7pm in March, 2017, Royal Room at the Ottawa Hospital.

Cultivating a regular mindfulness practice can assist physicians in reducing burnout, increasing equanimity and compassion with difficult patient scenarios, and improving teamwork and leadership skills.  Medical Residents, PGME Faculty, and Program Directors at the University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine are invited to join an 8 session mindfulness practice series based on the OASIS Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction curriculum (MBSR) developed at the University of Massachusetts School of Medicine and Dr. Jon Kabat Zinn, author of Full Castastrophe Living, Wherever You Go, There You Are and father of the contemporary North American movement integrating secular mindfulness practice into health care education, medical practice and society.

The 8 Monday night MBSR practice sessions include a full day mindfulness meditation retreat mid- course.  Sessions start September 2016 and run from 5-7pm Mondays in the Royal Room at the Ottawa Hospital. Course ends April 2017.

Participation is at NO COST for those physicians eligible to participate, thanks to generous support from the Office of Post Graduate Medical Education and Department for Innovation in Medical Education.
