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, presented by Larry Bergstrom, MD , Program Director of  Complementary and Integrative Medicine at the Mayo Clinic, will address the physiological effects of stress and teach methods to increase skills in coping and resilience though evidence-based Integrative Medicine principles.

Save the Date: Writing from the Reader's Perspective with Dr. George Gopen

Tuesday, July 9 & Wednesday, July 10

As competition for external funding becomes more challenging, getting one's scholarly work successfully published is more important than ever.  In this day-long workshop, George Gopen, PhD, JD, presents his approach, based on a single idea: learning to write for the reader allows the writer to control what readers learn.

As in past years, Dr. Gopen will also conduct hour-long, individualized consultations.  Only faculty members who participate in the day-long event will have access to the individual consultation registration. 

More about Dr. Gopen's original approach to scientific writing can be found in his article, The Science of Scientific Writing.
