Learn how mindfulness, self awareness, empathy, compassion and reflective practice can be cultivated in ways that improve patient health outcomes and well being as a doctor. Develop your skills in these relationship enhancing domains, in a psychologically safe space, with colleagues who are also ready to grow and stretch. Explore your inner terrain and use what you learn in practical ways to bring joy into your practice of medicine. Be the change you want to see, commit to making your wellbeing a priority in the service of others. Build a medical career that is sustainable and enhances your experience of medicine for the long term.

We value highly the impact of face to face connection, empathy, compassion and challenge. You can not get what we offer online or in modules. Immersion means fully engaged, deep mental and emotional involvement in something. When we do this together the learning is very powerful.

Doctors enrolling in the programs come from many different specialties and from all stages of career, from a few years practicing to 30+ years practicing. Some doctors are enrolling from interstate. Don’t miss your chance to fully engage in your experience of health care.
