Presentation on Mindfulness and Wellness by Dr. Avi Haramati

Dr. Aviad Haramati, PhD, a pioneer in the field of mindfulness and wellness in physician education and practice, presented an informational program to students and an interactive leadership training to faculty on Tuesday, February 20.

He presented research that validates the need for curriculum interventions in medical schools to increase both student and faculty empathy and wellness.  Dr. Haramati also identified potential outcomes of not addressing these issues and methods of intervention for individuals and the institution.

This was an informative and well attended program, and we look forward to having Dr. Haramati back on campus again soon!
