Program Philosophy

Personal wellness and workplace wellness are equally important. While mindfulness and other personal wellness techniques can help ground us and relieve short-term stress, we also believe that "you can't meditate your way out of a bad job." So we also focus on workplace stressors - and solutions.

The curriculum is solutions-oriented. We consider evidence and causes, but we also provide tools. This culminates in the last day's activity - developing an action plan. Listen, participate, share - and come away feeling not resigned but resolved.

Downtime is healthy. The schedule is not super-packed. So come and enjoy and relax. We've gone to too many jam-packed CME events ourselves over the years. Relax and unwind.

Nothing is required. Do as much or as little as you want. Or just sit by the creek. You are the best judge of what will help you get the most out of Docs in the Wild.
