We know that Small Changes Can Make a Big Difference!
Although we’re living in the epidemic of Generation Stress, positive emotions are just as infectious as negative emotions. And small changes make a BIG impact in lessening the stress epidemic.
Stress is Highly Contagious. Our brains are biologically wired to pick up on the emotions of others, so stress levels spread faster than the flu virus! Add in our own feelings of being overwhelmed, while trying to achieve ever-increasing academic expectations, and it should come as no surprise that turnover with medical professionals is also at an all-time high.
Just Imagine for a Moment...
Heading to your office, hospital or practice each day feeling relaxed, fulfilled and excited to get to work.
Feeling as passionate about medicine as you did when you were in graduate school.
Interested? You're in the right place!
Learn strategies to help increase engagement, reduce burnout and reclaim joy in practice!
The Mindfulness for Medical Professionals Gives YOU the Tools to:

A Step-by-Step Process.
This course guides you through implementing techniques and strategies that work.
Step 1: Watch, Listen & Learn
Dr. Kristen Race will help you understand the brain science that backs up the benefits of each mindfulness activity. Once you know it, it's hard to ignore it!
Step 2: Practice
Each module focuses on a simple mindfulness activity that you can start practicing anytime. Learn how to connect with your patients in more meaningful ways by first connecting with yourself.
Step 3: Mirror and Mentor
Each module includes an activity that you can do with your patients. Not only will your patients benefit from you being calmer and less cranky, but you can help them train their own brains.
We could find ways to support each other and deliver more calm and attentive care to our patients.
Bringing mindfulness into my workplace seemed unrealistic, but I learned that mindfulness doesn’t necessarily mean finding time to meditate at work! I would love to see my team of nurses and physicians take this course together.

Physician — Heal thyself!
“It’s important to recognize the benefits of a mindful life for everyone, especially in a fast-paced, potentially stressful environment such as medicine. There’s really no downside and plenty of benefits”
– Dr. Josh Welch, Physician, Northwest Colorado Health
The ability to re-center on being mindful and choosing how to react and respond to situations/interactions/forces that are out of my control were the most valuable parts of this program.
I've noted my satisfaction of my work and ability to navigate around difficulties has definitely improved, despite a lack of sleep associated with a newborn! Also, a sense of unity/collaboration with my team has definitely occurred because of this training.
– Lilia Luna, PSY.D, Behavioral Health Coordinator at Northwest Colorado Health
