      It's encouraging to find that there are people interested in bringing
      buddhist principles and understanding to modern medicine. Perhaps some
      people on this list would be able to make a contribution to this effort.
      And/Or some medical professionals would be interested in learning how
      to bring a more enlightened consciousness to their medical practice.

      In response to the increasing pace and complexity of medical practice,
      physicians (and those in training) are experiencing unprecedented levels
      of job dissatisfaction and burnout, affecting their sense of well-being
      and the quality of care they provide. A powerful but under-recognized
      approach to these challenges is to enhance physiciansÂ’ capacity for
      mindfulness. Mindfulness in medicine refers to the ability to be aware,
      in the present moment, on purpose, with the intention of providing
      better care to patients and to take better care of ourselves.
      Mindfulness is at the core of clinical competence. This program will
      give faculty the skills and tools to teach students and residents to
      become more mindful during daily clinical practice.
