At the risk of blogging about a blogpost, we were excited to see this piece in the New York Times on our friend and colleague Dr. Mick Krasner’s work with teaching mindfulness to physicians, with the ultimate goal of creating better doctors who communicate better, practice more effectively, are resilient and satisfied in their work and therefore, have an even more positive influence on our health and our society. Check out this piece in the New York times on Dr. Krasner and colleagues’ tremendous training program. It’s heartening and exciting to see the work that they are doing. Our own program for teaching mindfulness to medical students is based largely on Mick’s work at Rochester.
What do you think are the key things that doctors can gain from practicing mindfulness?
