BUILD ON COLLECTIVE EXPERIENCE by increasing AWARENESS during group discussions and taking ACTION to break down barriers in physician health.

A THOUGHT-PROVOKING DEBATE – Nature versus Nurture: To improve physician satisfaction and behaviour in the medical workplace, we must focus on individual self-awareness rather than institutional policy.

Interactive workshops and research presentations in THREE STREAMS:

  • SELF – physicians and trainees who are seeking to improve their own health.
  • SERVICE – physicians and trainees whose focus is on helping other physicians and trainees improve their health.
  • LEADERSHIP – those whose focus is on understanding and removing barriers to physician health in organizational and institutional contexts.
