EARN CME HOURS
The organization of the CME and structure therein allows a flow that will provide the attendees opportunities to gain skills and elasticity in transitioning back and forth between professional and personal realms of skill implementation, gaining more than work/ life balance; working toward the goal of work/ life integration:


• Didactic lectures to identify burnout: incidence, symptoms, causes, mitigation,  and management.
• Skill building for professional short-cuts and proficiencies to help avoid burnout.
• Breakout session  experiences that identify personal skill building  techniques to facilitate     

  resiliency, implement coping mechanisms, and decrease stress.
