Faculty in academic medicine experience stress each day of their lives, caused by shrinking reimbursement, pressure to see more patients and write grants, and increasing complexity of the field.
How can faculty cope with the stress of modernity, when our bodies' stress management systems were created to deal with saber-toothed-tigers?
This interactive session will address the physiological effects of stress and teach methods to increase skills in coping and resilience though evidence-based Integrative Medicine principles.
