2016 APDIM Spring Education Precourse
“Teaching Resilience to Residents and Physicians"
Monday, April 18, 2016

Course Description

As leaders and teachers in residency programs, we typically seek additional training in skills needed to advance our learners and improve our programs.  While critically important for the health of our training programs, these opportunities do not always address the resiliency of our residents.  This one-day precourse will focus on identifying burnout in residents and ways to prevent it.  It will also focus on helping participants understand burnout and the impact it has on the individual and the program.  Participants will also learn how to implement wellness programs in their institutions and receive take away tools to enhance their programs.
