Mind-Body Medicine Elective

The Mind-Body Medicine course aims to proactively attend to the mental and emotional health needs of medical students through exploration and teaching of self-awareness and mindfulness skills. By developing these skills, students will be better prepared to practice preventative self-care and self-awareness, ultimately improving overall well-being, stress management and empathy. During each session, students will be introduced to a new mind-body skill and have the opportunity to practice and learn the theory behind its practice.
