The Wayne State University School of Medicine Office of Faculty Affairs & Professional Development welcomes all members of our community to join us for a special interactive discussion:

"Mindfulness Meditation" 

Mindfulness is the simple method of focusing on present moment experiences in order to be fully present and function optimally in any setting. Modern medical practice is full of overlapping and conflicting priorities that can hamper our ability to perform at our highest level.

 Learning Objectives:  

  • Apply self–awareness and self-monitoring during clinical work and teaching
  • Attend to patient’s needs in an effective and compassionate manner.
  • Effectively manage challenges at work and practice ways by attending to your own well-being
