This will be a low-tech, high engagement afternoon focused on practical, hip-pocket, self-care techniques resident physicians can use in real time. The event will be highly experiential with a focus on exploring and developing practical strategies and techniques together.

There will be a plenary session followed by multiple concurrent learning stations each exploring one specific area of focus through discussion and activities. Residents will move from station to station and will be able to take in five over the course of the afternoon. The stations will focus on the following subject areas.

1. Communication
2. Nutrition
3. Teambuilding
4. Feedback
5. Mindfulness
6. Life hacks
7. Call Room Moves
8. Emotional Intelligence / Self Awareness

10. Non Clinical Careers

The AMA advances patient-centered, quality care by advocating for and supporting physician leadership and wellness.
