Effective communication is a critical component for success. Learn how to self-assess for strengths and improvement opportunities, communicate for change, and identify and manage micro-aggressions. These are a few of the practical skills which will be presented. Addressing the physician as a whole fortifies the person with practical techniques translatable back to his/ her practice and work-life integration.

​Career sustainability for physicians is increasingly threatened. To address the current burnout epidemic affecting our colleagues, MD Anderson Cancer Center and Baylor College of Medicine, are proud to announce Burnout to Brilliance, a CME accredited national annual symposium for physicians.

The structure of the symposium is highly unique. Our mission is to empower physicians with tools that can be translated back to their everyday work-life integration. We offer didactic lectures for professional development, accompanied by opportunities for personal resiliency skill acquisition through the exposures offered at Miraval. We translate the knowledge we have on preventing, avoiding and managing burnout into actions and practical experiences, bridging the gap and removing the disconnect.

"I will now meditate more and take a moment before difficult patients or a difficult colleague interaction."

-MD, Pittsburgh, PA
